    Preservation work continues at Albert Barnes’ estate

    Work is underway by the Barnes Foundation to begin looking at how to preserve and present the home and land where Albert Barnes and his wife lived in Chester Springs. WHYY Morning Edition’s Brenda Jorett talked with botanist Ernie Schuyler about his project spending months cataloging hundreds of species of plants at the 138-acre estate, Ker-Feal.
