Grant Award

I'm very excited to announce that we have been awarded a $4000 grant by the Norcross Wildlife Foundation, Inc. We applied for funding last December to cover orchard deer exclosure fencing, and our submittal was just granted.

This significant award will have an extremely positive effect on our program this year, and long into the future. In addition, its impact will be felt at the Regional, and National level of our program, since the CT Chapter is a keystone of the broader attempt to bring regional diversity into the American chestnut breeding program.

We look forward to living up to the terms of the agreement, and reporting back on the success this Norcross Foundation grant has enabled.
