Join WNY PRISM in partnership with New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation to learn how to identify, survey for and report hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA)! This event will feature an indoor training where you’ll learn about the ecological importance of hemlock trees and the threat by HWA, how to use the iMapInvasives app, winter safety tips and more! You will get an opportunity to adopt a location to survey this winter and then we will head outdoors to demonstrate and practice how to identify hemlocks, look for HWA infestations and make reports to iMapInvasives.
