Invasive Forest Pests: What’s Here, What’s on the Horizon and How Can We Prepare
August 15th - Classroom Session; 1:00 – 4:00 pm;
NOCO Pavilion, 450 Ensminger Road, Tonawanda, NY 14223.
August 16th – survey of area location to be announced to registered participants.
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? How can you watch for signs and symptoms of Asian Longhorned Beetle? Join the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County to learn how to identify invasive forest pest threats, their biology and how this affects monitoring protocols, and how state invasive species regulations 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 for the future.
