Has hemlock woolly adelgid arrived in our natural areas in western New York? What might Spotted Lantern Fly in Pennsylvania mean for our forests and grape industry? What is the current status of Emerald Ash Borer. Come join with the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets and CCE Erie to learn how to identify invasive forest pest threats, their biology and how this affects monitoring protocols and how state invasive species regulation apply to disposal and management options.

The second day of the workshop will provide an opportunity to survey for forest pests in likely entrance corridors around Erie County. This will be a valuable training for those interested in preserving our forested lands into the future.
