SLELO - Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Guided Walk - Monday, February 10th, 2020

Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), is an invasive forest pest that kills hemlock trees. Winter and autumn are ideal seasons to search for HWA as they create a white woolly coat that can be seenat the base of hemlock needles during these seasons. 

The St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (SLELO PRISM) will be co-hosting guided walk and talks throughout the region to recruit and train community members on how to recognize and report HWA. Attendees will learn how to survey for and report signs of HWA using a mobile app called iMapInvasives. An optional indoor presentation will follow the walk.

During the walk, a demonstration for iMapInvasives mobile app will occur. Attendees are encouraged to create a free iMapInvasives user account and to download the iMapInvasivesmobile app prior to attending the hike. The app is free and available in the google play or app store. For more details please contact Megan Pistolese at 315-387-3600 ext. 7724, or email
