An invasive insect called Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) kills hemlock trees. Hemlocks are a key tree species, and loss of hemlock populations would dramatically reduce the overall health of our forests. YOU can help protect Trenton Greenbelt from HWA!
Join The Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust and SLELO-PRISM for a guided hike and learn about:
  • Hemlock Tree Identification and Ecology
  • Introduction to Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
  • HWA Early Detection Survey Techniques
  • Reporting Observations Using iMapInvasives Mobile App
  • Help strengthen early detection efforts for invasive species

Dress for cold and snow!

Attendees are encouraged to make a free iMapInvasives user account and download the iMap mobile app prior to attending the hike. By searching for and reporting observations, volunteers aid a state-wide effort to monitor for and manage HWA.
