Help Protect Hemlock Trees 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 and urban green spaces. Help us track the spread and absence of this invasive forest pest via iMapInvasives Join us for a Guided Walk and Learn How You Can Help When: Friday, October 25th 3pm-5pm Where: Wachmastier Field Station located on County Rt. 27 in Canton, NY We will meet at 2:50 pm at the Wachmastier Field Station and CARPOOL to the Pike Road entrance for a guided walk on the Kip Trail. Please register online by clicking here EVENT FLIER Talking Points: Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Impacts/Signs of Infestation Hemlock Tree Identification & Ecology How to Survey for HWA How to Report Observations Using the iMapInvasives Mobile App (Please create an iMapInvasives user account and download the mobile app prior to attending)Find out more »
On November 5 from 2-3 pm, the Northeast IPM Center will be hosting a webinar on "New tools for identifying and prioritizing range-shifting invasive plants". Here's the link to register. Description Join Jenica Allen and Bethany Bradley to learn about new tools for identifying and prioritizing range-shifting invasive plants coming soon to a landscape near you. Whether you’re a property owner, land manager, landscape professional, or policymaker, these tools are for you. Drs. Allen and Bradley will provide a live demonstration of the tools and answer your questions about how climate change could influence invasive plants. Presenters Dr. Jenica Allen is the Campus Living Laboratory Manager at Mount Holyoke College. Her quantitative ecology work is focused on forecasting the effects of global change on ecological systems. Recent research investigated how climate and land-use change affect the geographic distributions of invasive plants, both in the Northeastern U.S. and nationally. She uses a translational ecology model, where stakeholders inform research needs and research findings are translated to stakeholder-relevant tools, through the Northeast Regional Invasive Species and Climate Change (RISCC) Management Network.
