Past Event

Trees: Endangered Species: The Ozark Chinquapin (VIRTUAL)

Registration period: February 15 – March 9

Date: Friday, March 10, 2023 from 12 p.m.-1 p.m.

Location: Online only

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 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 join us and learn about this worthy effort.
