Event Details

Indian River Lakes Conservancy, in partnership with St. Lawrence-Eastern Lake Ontario (SLELO) Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM), will be hosting a Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Workshop on Friday, February 23, 2019. The workshop will take place at the IRLC office in Redwood, NY. The event is free and open to the public.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (Adelges tusgae), or HWA, is an invasive forest pest that causes hemlock tree mortality. Loss of hemlock populations dramatically reduces species biodiversity, which diminishes forests and the overall ecological health of infested areas. Megan Pistolese, a SLELO PRISM educator, will discuss topics such as HWA impacts, infestation symptoms, treatment, HWA distribution in New York and early detection techniques. There will be a guided hemlock ID and ecology field session as well.

If you are interested in attending this event, please pre-register by emailing Megan Pistolese at megan.pistolese@tnc.org by February 21, 2018. For more information and a full description of all the topics, please visit the IRLC webpage at indianriverlakes.org.
