EP:104 | The Story of the Rare Ozark Chinquapin

Gamekeeper Podcast

Aug 2 2022 • 1 hr 1 min

This week we dive deep into learning about an obscure native chestnut relative that is highly preferred by wildlife, and the grass roots organization we believe will bring it back to its former glory. Our brilliant guest, AJ Hendershott, with the Ozark Chinquapin Foundation, really schooled us on everything to know about the Ozark Chinquapin (Castanea ozarkensis) and what they are doing to get them back to a sustainable level. You’re gonna want to get your hands on some nuts after listening. The conversation briefly evolves into some fun discussion about primitive weaponry, and Dudley also talks tree protection. Listen, Learn, and Enjoy!
