A Call to Action for Ash Tree Conservation and Resistance Breeding Webinar

March 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:15pm ET Ash tree species in North America are under mortal threat from the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), now in 35 states and five Canadian provinces.  There are ongoing efforts to conserve this native tree species by producing genetically diverse, resistant seedlings suitable for restoring ash on the landscape.  Identifying "lingering ash" is a critical component of amplifying these efforts, and this presentation will explain the narrow window of time in which urgent actions are needed to discover and preserve these individuals.  Once identified, these trees can be replicated through grafting for further testing.  Trees that are shown to have some level of resistance can be used as parents in conservation breeding programs.  Kathleen Knight and Jennifer Koch of the USDA Forest Service will review EAB and ash tree mortality from an ecological perspective and report on the breeding program and latest results.  Jonathan Rosenthal of the Ecological Research Institute will share a model training program, based on their results, to find and collect materials critical for breeding resistance into the ash tree population.    This webinar is open to all. Seeking 1.25 CEU with the International Society of Arboriculture.

Invasive Bark and Ambrosia Beetles: Their Impacts and Detection

April 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

April 15th @2PM Register  Presented by: Robert (Bob) Rabaglia, USDA – Forest Service Bark and ambrosia beetles are one of the most commonly intercepted groups of insects at US ports, and one of the most commonly established non-native species across the country. Although most of the more than 60 species of non-native bark and ambrosia beetles established in the US are not severely impacting US forests and trees, some species have had significant impacts. This webinar will highlight some of these species, and discuss what they have in common. The US Forest Service program of early detection of these potentially damaging species will also be discussed. Robert (Bob) Rabaglia is currently National Entomologist for US Forest Service, Forest Health Protection in Washington DC.  He has been with the Forest Service since 2005 and coordinates national forest insect projects across the country.  He coordinates national funding and policy for projects such as, early detection/rapid response, gypsy moth, southern pine beetle and hemlock woolly adelgid. Prior to joining the Forest Service, he was forest entomologist in Maryland for 18 years. He received his MS and PhD degrees in entomology from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science & Forestry in Syracuse, NY.

Potential Biological Control Agents Matched for Invasive Hydrilla Biotypes in the U.S.

May 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Webinar hosted by the Great Lakes Hydrilla Collaborative When:  May 12th at 3:00 pm EST. Register: http://hydrillacollaborative.com/Home/Webinars Presenter: Matt Purcell, Director of the USDA ARS Australian Biological Control Laboratory, will provide an overview of those survey efforts and will discuss several insect species that are being evaluated to determine their potential effectiveness as biological control agents for U.S. invasive hydrilla. Description: Biological control agents introduced into the U.S. for the control of invasive hydrilla have been partially effective and new agents are needed, especially those adapted to cooler climates and environments. Since 2014, extensive surveys of hydrilla have been conducted in Asia, particularly China and the Republic of Korea, where the U.S. introductions were thought to have originated. Samples were genetically characterized to identify matches with the three invasive U.S. introductions; separate dioecious and monoecious introductions last century and the more recent detection in the Connecticut River. Sites have been identified where each of these three distinct genotypes occur and include both monoecious and dioecious biotypes.  Surveys have been conducted at these sites to identify and collect herbivores to be evaluated as biological control agents.

This invasive worm easily goes unnoticed and is mostly unknowingly spread by gardeners through infested nursery stock. Asian jumping worm has been confirmed present in Colton, NY from an iMapInvasives observation submitted by one of our volunteers. This is the first reported observation confirmed in the St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario Region (counties of Oswego, Oneida, Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence). If you are a gardener or someone who sells plants, please join us to learn how to recognize Asian jumping worm, what to do if you find it and how to prevent the spread.

Invasive Species Awareness Week

June 7 - June 13

New York will celebrate its 7th annual ISAW June 7-13, 2020 The mission of the New York Invasive Species Awareness Week (ISAW) is to promote knowledge and understanding of invasive species and the harm they can cause by engaging citizens in a wide range of activities across the state, and empowering them to take action to help stop the spread. This annual education campaign is comprised of various outreach initiatives and events led by partner organizations statewide. Activities include interpretive hikes, invasive plant removal, and restoration projects, displays, webinars, radio and television programming, and more. To Host An ISAW Event Participate in ISAW SLELO ISAW Social Media Tool Kit SLELO ISAW WEBINAR SERIES Monday, June 8th, 1 pm-2 pm You can help Enhance Outreach for Spotted Lanternfly Webinar REGISTER The spotted lanternfly is an invasive pest that feeds on a wide range of fruit, ornamental and woody trees. If allowed to this pest could seriously impact the country’s grape, orchard, logging, and even our tourism industries. SLF is considered a high priority prevention species on a regional and national level. SLELO PRISM has developed an outreach strategy that provides a targeted and measurable approach geared towards behavioral change. This approach engages local businesses and their customers who are most likely traveling from known SLF quarantine areas to recreate in New York.  If you are a charter captain, marina or tackle/shop owner, a campground manager, or waterfront business in the counties of Oneida, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis or St. Lawrence counties we want to collaborate with you! Please join us and learn how you can help with this outreach effort. Presented by Megan Pistolese- SLELO PRISM Education Outreach Coordinator  and Brittney Rogers SLELO PRISM Aquatic Resiliency and Restoration Coordinator   Wednesday, June 10th, 11 am-12 pm Using Biocontrol’s to Suppress Invasive Species REGISTER Using biological controls to suppress invasive species can be a complex undertaking, but it can be an effective tool in our efforts to protect our lands and waters from the adverse impacts of invasive species. This webinar will provide an introduction to how biologicals controls are tested and used effectively, discuss progress on controls for species such as water chestnut and knotweed, and share hands-on experience with using biological controls to manage swallowwort. Presented by Rob Williams Manager of the SLELO PRISM   Thursday, June 11th, 11 am-12 pm Enhancing The Health Of Your Urban Forests REGISTER Urban forests are a collection of trees and other woody vegetation growing along streets, yards, parks, cemeteries, school grounds, and undeveloped green spaces. Urban forests provide green spaces in otherwise concrete jungles and have numerous environmental, social, and economic benefits. Invasive species and climate change threaten the health of urban forests. This webinar will focus on a step by step approach that municipal leaders can take to make their urban forests more sustainable in the wake of invasive pests and climate change.  An overview of the SLELO PRISM Urban Forest Sustainability Initiative and available resources will be provided.
