Hemlock Woolly Adelgid: Identification and Survey Training

March 9 @ 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

Free

Hemlock trees are an iconic and valuable part of the Catskills region. Dan Snider, Field Projects Manager for the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnerships (CRISP) will teach us about the hemlock woolly adelgid, an invasive insect that is threatening our native hemlock trees. We will discuss identification of the insect, best treatment practices, and how you can help contribute to scientific projects to manage this invasive pest and preserve hemlocks on our landscape. There will also be a short field component where we will practice surveying hemlocks for hemlock woolly adelgid.

The program is free, but pre-registration is required. You may use our registration form or call OCCA at (607) 547-4488. This program will take place in the community room at the Clark Sports Center, 124 County Road 52, Cooperstown. This is a joint program offering of OCCA and Mohican Farm/The Clark Foundation.
