Additional Information: Instructed by:
The Ozark Chinquapin was a major player in our Ozarks forests; often it was the dominant tree species on many ridge tops and rocky slopes. The decline of the species had major effects on local wildlife food webs and traditional cultural uses. The hard-working Ozark Chinquapin Foundation, area foresters and local naturalists have been dedicated for almost 15 years in saving this species, and there are several success stories ahead. This classroom program will look at this unique tree’s place in our local ecology and highlight the foundation’s research and outreach. There are many ways local citizens can help conservation efforts. We invite interested nature enthusiasts to come learn about this worthy effort. Nature center staff Tim Smith and Jeff Cantrell presenting. JEFFREY N CANTRELL
