The Lost Apple Project with David Benscoter

The Garfield Library hosts guest speaker David Benscoter, founder of The Lost Apple Project on Saturday, November 13 at 11 a.m. via Zoom.

All are invited to hear David speak on the historical importance of apples in the region and how the Project has located several species once thought extinct.

The Lost Apple Project has partnered with the Whitman County Historical Society in Washington and the Temperate Orchard Conservancy in Oregon to investigate, identify and preserve heritage apple trees and orchards in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The Project has recovered 29 apple varieties that were thought to have disappeared.

Benscoter, a retired FBI and IRS Criminal agent, lives north of Spokane and travels throughout the Pacific Northwest in his search for heritage apples.
