Save the American Chestnut!

Come to Earthplace in Westport for the grand opening at 2:00PM of Natureplace, a new indoor nature experience, and a fun program about the endangered American Chestnut trees. Natureplace features a great big tree in the Explorers? Clubhouse. Gather near the Clubhouse to hear the story of Chestnut trees in Connecticut and to find out ways that you can help save this endangered species. Chestnut trees were once widespread throughout the Connecticut landscape but their population declined due to a deadly blight. Plant an American Chestnut tree at 3:00PM and learn all about chestnut trees through fun activities and crafts. Explore the trails before or after the events to celebrate National Trails Day!
