Two students assist biology instructor

Update | Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Columbus State students Kevin Faris and Kimber Colahan assisted Biology Instructor Ryan Homsher with data and seed collection of American chestnuts north of Zanesville on October 9. The data they collected will be used to assess the health of the trees on reclaimed mine land. Seeds collected will be used for future plantings and possible research projects.

The field site was a former research plantation developed to study the growth of American chestnuts on different reclamation methods. For more information on efforts to bring the iconic American chestnut back to our Appalachian forests, please go to (Pictured below, students Kimber Colahan in the foreground and Kevin Faris behind.)
