The American Chestnut Foundation 27th Annual Meeting

October 15-17, 2010
National Training Conservation Center
698 Conservation Way
Shepherdstown, WV 25443
(877) 706-6282

Join TACF for a weekend at the fabulous National Training Conservation Center in Shepherdstown, WV. This US Fish & Wildlife facility was designed to resemble the 19th century farm landscape and blend into the rural grounds, providing a unique and idyllic retreat setting to foster learning.

NCTC’s museum chronicles the rich heritage of wildlife conservation. Included are contraband items made from endangered species, elaborate carvings and mounted birds and animals and treasures that include the original set of duck stamps issued by the Postal Service.
Walk some of NCTC’s 5 miles of paved footpaths throughout the campus –an outstanding environment for bird-watching, jogging, and nature photography. NCTC’s rugged hiking trails take you through eastern hardwood forests and Potomac River meadows. An active eagle’s nest is visible from many locations around the NCTC campus.

With over twelve workshops offered, there is certain to be something for everyone, from the seasoned chestnut enthusiast to the newest member of TACF.

Lodging at NCTC is available but extremely limited. Please contact NCTC to reserve your room.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

RE: Amer. Chestnut Society 27th Annual Meeting

While the people are in the Shepherdstown area you might want to plan a visit/tour of the Freshwater Institute of the Conservation Fund in Shepherdstown where there is much hubbub about the aquaculture system facility on site raising Atlantic salmon. My nephew worked there in the recent past and is familiar with its mission.
