"Mycorrhizae and the American Chestnut "
Our May meeting will feature guest speaker Dr. Martin Cippolini, Science Coordinator for the Georgia Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation, and Dana Professor Biology at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. He will be speaking on the decimation and restoration of the American Chestnut tree by the Chestnut blight fungus (Cryphonectria parasitica) and the Longleaf Pine and its shrinking ecosystem. As always, try to come around 6:30 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!
