Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Monitoring Workshop | Saturday, October 8, 10AM to 4PM **2016**

adklogoYour help with early detection is the only hope for our Catskill Hemlocks. Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an aggressive invasive insect that kills a host tree in just a few years. Our eastern hemlocks, with little or no resistance to these infestations, have been hit hard by HWA in the Catskill Park. You’ll be trained to identify and conduct surveys for HWA, and can adopt an area in the Catskill Park to survey.

Sponsored by ADK and CRISP.
