Clear Day Thunder: Rescuing the American Chestnut

Sunday March 24th @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

As part of its “Voices of the Land” series, Westerly Land Trust in partnership with The United Theatre hosts a screening of Clear Day Thunder: Rescuing the American Chestnut. At the turn of the 20th century, a deadly blight accidentally imported into the U.S. from Asia devastated the American Chestnut. Within a span of only two generations, the tree was nearly extinct. This new documentary film tells the story of passionate citizen scientists and researchers working to restore this ecologically and economically important species, during this pivotal moment.

After the film, stick around for a Q&A with the folks from The American Chestnut Foundation.
