This article was featured in the 2024 Winter Newsletter by Meg Wheadon, a new SLELO volunteer. 

I wanted to do something to help protect our hemlocks, so  I joined an HWA survey training hosted by SLELO PRISM and THTLT. During the training, I learned how to survey for and report HWA to iMap. I am retired and spend most of my free time in my kayak or roaming the woods, either on foot or on snowshoes, depending on the season. I am happy to donate some of my time inspecting trees for the greater cause while I enjoy the outdoors.  I feel we all need to do our part where we can.
