Citizen Scientists needed this Sunday

Citizen Scientists Who Want to Help the Planet, Needed This Sunday! The American Chestnut Foundation's (ACF) has been developing a new blight-free American chestnut tree on an orchard that they are renting from Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.  This Sunday, they need your help in measuring the diameter of these trees-in order to help move the goal of creating a blight-resistant strand a little farther.

 Join ACF and Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission this Sunday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at ACF's orchard behind 2800 Triadelphia Lake Road (Cross Street: Georgia Avenue) in Brookeville.   Park along Triadelphia Lake Road.  We will provide all of the tools-we just need your help in saving the American Chestnut trees.
