  • Wednesday, February 16, 2022, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Adirondack Forest Pest Hunters - Surveying for HWA

Join the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) and partners* on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 from 10:00am-11:30am on Zoom to learn about hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) and how you can help survey for this invasive insect in the Adirondack region. HWA is killing eastern hemlock trees from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Catskills and was first found in the Adirondack Park in 2017. Citizen scientists can help determine how far HWA has spread. This workshop will cover basic identification, survey techniques, and how to sign up for a trail to survey.
