American Chestnut Day

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Visit Anna Ruby Falls on July 14th, from 10:00 am till 3:00 pm and learn about the former king of the forest, the American chestnut. The American chestnut was once one of the most important trees in forests from Maine to Georgia, until the early 1900’s when a blight, an Asian fungus wiped out the trees. Representatives from the Georgia Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation will be here to share information about efforts to bring back this Mighty Giant.
