Monitoring and Managing Ash Workshop Series

August 6, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County, 121 Second Street
Oriskany, NY 13424 United States
+ Google Map

August Single-Session Monitoring and Managing Ash (MaMA) Training Workshops Learn how to conserve ash and manage emerald ash borer (EAB) – the future of ash is in your hands!   The MaMA program of the Ecological Research Institute (see www.MonitoringAsh.org) provides constructive actions to take at each stage of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) invasion, including even pre-invasion and the final invasion stage, when almost all of an area’s ash area have been killed by this invasive beetle. In this free workshop, you’ll learn how to mitigate EAB damage, and more importantly to detect naturally occurring EAB-resistant native ash, which provide great hope for ash conservation. You’ll learn how to use MaMA’s citizen-science projects, including the MaMA Monitoring Plots Network, which reaches from New England to the Midwest, and the MaMA Lingering Ash Search project, in which you report locations of trees that are likely EAB-resistant. Most importantly, you’ll learn why it’s necessary to leave some standing live ash trees, especially healthy ones.   MaMA’s development and implementation have been in close collaboration with the US Forest Service scientists leading the search for and propagation of EAB-resistant native ash, and by helping to find these trees, you can help save ash from extinction. This workshop’s hands-on training includes setting up an actual ash monitoring plot to help detect resistant ash.   Continuing education credits: NYS Nursery and Landscape Association (3.5 CNLP); International Society of Arboriculture (1.25 Arborist; 1.25 BCMA Practice); Society of American Foresters (3 Cat. 1); and Cornell Cooperative Extension (3 Master Naturalist).   Pre-registration encouraged; for registration or additional information, email Outreach@MonitoringAsh.org or call (845) 419-5229.   When and where: 8/2, 1-4:30 Presented in collaboration with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Variable Leaf Water Milfoil Draw-down Removal

September 11, 2019 - October 15, 2019
Raquette River Colton,

Attention Higley Flow/ Racquette River Community Members If you live along the Raquette River or play there you can help! Variable-leaf water-milfoil is spreading in the Raquette River/Higley Flow in Colton, NY. From September 11th through September 15th, Community members will gather during a water drawdown om the Raquette River to manually remove the plant. It's a fun way to engage with the community and enhance the stewardship of this beautiful river-plus its an excuse to play in the mud! Variable-leaf water-milfoil is an invasive aquatic plant that can quickly take over a waterbody causing negative impacts on wildlife and recreation. The plant has been noted in the River in these locations: Cottage Road, Sugarbush Lane and a large patch near McEwen Point.  Volunteers will also be looking at areas around what community members refer to as the “old beach”.Clearing your own beach and any other areas near you is encouraged. Organizers have mesh bags and boogie boards that they will gladly deliver to help your removal efforts. To get involved, or if you think you have variable leaf water-milfoil please contact (315) 265-2255, or email coltonmilfoil@gmail.com.

Webinar-New Tools for Identifying and Prioritizing Range-Shifting Invasive Plants

November 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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.
