About the event
Join guided hikes to learn how to survey for and report hemlock woolly adelgid – an invasive insect that kills hemlock trees. The Eastern Hemlock is a key tree species found throughout the Tug Hill region that provides many benefits for people and nature. Detecting the presence of HWA early on enhances management efforts to protect infested trees and helps to stop the spread to new areas. Trainers will help participants learn how to identify the Eastern Hemlock, survey for HWA, and report observations using their smartphones through a free mobile application called iMapInvasives (a community science tool).
