Annual Meeting Details – We have speakers this year that you don’t want to miss. Lisa Thomson, TACF President and CEO, Dr. Jared Westbrook, TACF Director of Science, and Tom Saielli, our regional coordinator will speak on “The evolving effort to restore the American chestnut, and how TACF’s Chapters help ensure mission success.” There will be time for discussion about the chapter-specific breeding plan.
