You have received this message because you participated in the July 11, 2016 Adirondack Forest Pest Summit in North Creek, NY. You should have also recently received an email from iMapInvasives which provided you with your log-in information for nyimapinvasives.org  so that you can record observations or surveys for invasive species. With the upcoming September 17, 2016 Workshop–RSVP at this link–you have an opportunity to learn more about forest pests, participate in field training, and adopt an area in the Adirondacks to monitor for forest pests such as Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. (See Training Materials from Prior Workshops)

The Only Hope for our Adirondack Hemlocks is Your Help with Early Detection Through Monitoring. Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an aggressive, devastating invasive insect that kills a host tree in a few years. Our eastern hemlocks, which have little or no resistance to these infestations, have been hit hard by HWA in many areas south of the Adirondacks. HWA is not in the Adirondack Park yet, but there are significant hemlock communities at risk in the Adirondacks. (Read More about HWA)

The workshop will train you to identify and conduct surveys for invasive species that threaten our Adirondack forests. You will have the opportunity to adopt an area around Lake George to survey once each year for HWA and other forest pests. In this workshop we will be focusing on the many beautiful land holdings stewarded by the Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC), such as Amy’s Park, Cat and Thomas Mountains, and the Last Great Shoreline, which provide important protection for the Lake George Watershed.
