Help Protect Adirondack Hemlocks!
Learn to identify and survey for the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.
Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an aggressive, devastating invasive insect that can kill its host tree in a few years. HWA is not in the Adirondack Park yet, but we have significant hemlock communities at risk (see hemlock distribution map).
There will be a field portion of the training in the afternoon at the Pack Demonstration Forest.
- Dress and bring gear to spend 2 hrs outside.
