SLELO PRISM

Virtual Hike Challenge

SLELO PRISM will hold our annual Virtual Hike Challenge (VHC) again this winter. The challenge, happening November 2022, through March 2023, pairs winter hiking with simple instructions to help keep an eye out for hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). HWA is an invasive forest pest that is confirmed to be present in Oswego County and is spreading along the Eastern Lake Ontario shoreline.


First HWA Biocontrol Release in SLELO PRISM

Through a collaboration with our partners, HWA biocontrol-Laricobius nigrinus, have been released for the first time in the SLELO region.


Beetles and Silverflies Can Save Forests

Hope for the hemlocks may come in the form of a predatory beetle, Laricobius nigrinus, and two silver fly species, Leucotaraxis argenticollis, and Leucotaraxis piniperda.


Removing Water Chestnut From the Oswegatchie River

SLELO partners, stakeholders and volunteers have joined forces to control a large water chestnut infestation on the Oswegatchie River.
