Description

Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is a destructive invasive insect that has already been detected in southern Vermont, including Windsor County. Join us for this 3-hour workshop to learn how to identify HWA-infested hemlocks and what landowners can do to detect and slow the spread of this insect pest. Jim Esden, forester with the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation, will begin the workshop with an indoor discussion and then head outdoors to use state-wide surveying protocol to monitor the park’s hemlocks. All ages are welcome!

 Please dress appropriately for outdoor activity, and bring a water bottle, snack, and snowshoes if possible. Adult and children’s snowshoes are available if needed. Event will continue snow or shine! Co-sponsored by Vermont Coverts and the Vermont Woodlands Association. This event is eligible for CFE credits from the Society of American Foresters and has been assigned three (2.5 CFE) Category 1 credits.
