Hike to Protect Your Hemlocks Webinar

December 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Thursday, December 3rd

Via Zoom Webinar

1pm-2pm EST

REGISTER

Take a hike and protect your hemlocks.

Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is an invasive insect that kills hemlock trees. Hemlock trees are vital to the health of our forests. They provide food and shelter to wildlife and many eco-services that benefit people and nature.

The purpose of this webinar is to recruit volunteers to take hikes on local trails to keep an eye out for HWA.  Attendees will learn to recognize signs of an HWA infestation and report observations using a mobile app. Public hiking trails located within the eastern Lake Ontario region that have hemlock stands along the path will be showcased along with an opportunity to adopt trails to monitor for HWA.

Hosted by: Presented by SLELO PRISM, the Indian River Lakes Conservancy, and the Black River Environmental Improvement Assocaition/Black River Outdoor Education Program.
