The work that goes into managing invasive species often focuses on the treatment or removal of invasive plants and animals. But our work goes beyond the total number of acres treated or pounds of invasive plants removed; our work aims to protect the lands and waters in which we all depend on.
This webinar showcases the unique landscapes and ecological communities that make the St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario or SLELO region so special and the work that SLELO PRISM and our partners do to protect our lands and waters from the impacts of invasive species.

Hemlocks are a foundation species, meaning they often create the habitat in which they exist in. Hemlock woolly adelgid is an invasive forest pest that is killing hemlock trees in New York state and along the Eastcoast.
This webinar provides an overview of hemlock wolly adelgid, and hemlock tree ecology. A live demo of the iMap Invasives mobile app is also provided along with an overview of how volunteers can help protect hemlock trees.
