Heroes of Conservation Ep. 6: Heroes in Action
Join Hero of Conservation Ron Kuipers and Editor-at-large Eddie Nickens as they assess the blight resistance of American chestnut trees in a Maryland experimental orchard. American chestnuts that are bred to survive the blight may once again become an important wildlife food source in eastern forests.
Next week, Nickens will join a Kansas couple who have spent 23 years volunteering to educate local youths through their Outdoor Adventure Camp.
