The Fall 2015 edition of The Bur, the Virginia Chapter’s newsletter, is now available on their web site.

American Chestnut

American Chestnut burs contain the nuts until they ripen.

This edition of the newsletter includes an update on the Virginia TACF Breeding Program which has made great progress in restoring the American Chestnut to Virginia.

It also describes the Learning Box Grant program which will donate four American Chestnut learning boxes to the Virginia Master Naturalist program. These learning boxes will be used to educate new and current VMN volunteers so that VMN volunteers can take them to outreach events to extend the learning box experience to others.
