Seeking Chapter Historian | Work from Home

Pennsylvania features prominently in the movement to restore the American chestnut. From the Chestnut Blight Commissions held in Harrisburg in the early 1900s to the work of the founders of the PA Chapter of TACF, Pennsylvanians have a special connection to this tree. Sadly, with the passing of long-time member Bill Lord a couple of years ago, we have lost our most dedicated resource for this rich history.

We are seeking one or more individuals to fill Bill’s shoes as Chapter historians. If you are passionate about history and the American chestnut this could be the perfect way for you to get involved. We are seeking help with cataloging historical documents and resources to share with members and the public about the significant role that Pennsylvania played in the restoration movement.

This work can be done remotely. If you are interested please contact Jean: mail@patacf.org | 814-863-7192

American Chestnut Activity Sheet | Work from Home

Forest restoration is a multigenerational mission. It is critical that we educate the public about the history of this native tree, its significant role in our forest ecosystem, and our progress to restore it. We have some decent materials for adults but we want to do more to connect with children if we want to ensure three is the next generation to take up the work. We are seeking guidance from professional educators to develop targeted activities for a children’s activity sheet. We want to start with a 2-sided 8 by14 sheet with activities for a variety of ages. Once we have content we will seek assistance from graphic artists to create an attractive layout.

We can work on this remotely over email and zoom as needed.
