Calling middle school educators! Join us for an invasive species curriculum workshop on Friday, September 28th in Albany, NY. The workshop will include the following: an introduction to invasive species, instructions on how to utilize iMapInvasives, review a 2-week unit on invasive species and receive supplies such as hand lenses, guides, etc. It is crucial that students have a basic understanding of invasive species and what they can do to help stop the spread. By instilling this knowledge at an early age, we can help mold them into becoming good stewards of the environment.

Join us on October 11th from 10:30am-2pm (rain date 10/12 same time) at Forest Park in Camden, NY. Meet in the parking lot, look for SLELO flag signs. Bring your own bagged lunch/beverages and dress for the weather as the entire event is outdoors. Forest Park has flat paved trails and is wheelchair accessible. Please don't bring your pets to the event. Learn about hemlock woolly adelgid, an invasive insect that kills hemlock trees and how to recognize signs of an infestation and report observations. Attendees will be brought on a guided walk and talk on the public trails at Forest Park and be shown how to survey for signs of HWA on site and learn to use the iMapInvasives mobile app to report both negative and positive sightings. Become a citizen scientist and help increase early detection efforts for HWA. Finding this invasive forest pest early, before it's population sizes are too large, will help increase the success of management/treatment efforts.
