While the word extinct is a word heard more and more these days, what with climate change and the like, it’s always nice to here when a species has been “rediscovered”. It’s even better when it’s a local story, which for me is here in Missouri.

So, today’s article is entitled “A legendary Ozark chestnut tree, thought extinct, is rediscoveredby Robert Langellier over at National Geographic. All done thanks to a little citizen science.
