Late fall and winter are ideal times of the year to take a hike and check hemlock trees for the presence of an invasive forest pest called hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). This is because HWA forms a white woolly mass around its body during this time which makes it more noticeable.
November through March you can help protect forests and win prizes by participating in the annual #VirtualHikeChallenge. To get details and survey tips visit the official Virtual Hike Challenge webpage. Participating is simple, fill out the sign-up form on the webpage, take a hike, check hemlock trees for the white woolly masses of hemlock woolly adelgid, report observations, and share your experience on any social media channel.
