10 species of apple, presumed extinct, have been rediscovered in the American West

 Good News Notes:

The Lost Apple Project rules. Here’s the gist: David Benscoter and EJ Brandt, a Vietnam veteran and a retired FBI agent, are amateur botanists. They love apples. Specifically, they love old species of apples that are thought to be extinct. The two men traipse around the Pacific Northwest and find decrepit apple trees in hopes of finding and documenting old apple breeds.
