Eastern Hemlocks throughout New York State are threatened by Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. On July 26th, the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP) will run a workshop for ADK members who are willing to survey one or more of 16 old growth stands in the northwestern area of the Catskill Park. Accessing all of these stands requires some level of bushwhacking.
The morning will feature a summary of hemlock and hemlock woolly adelgid biology, an overview of survey methods, and a review of old growth hemlock stand locations in the Catskill Park. In the afternoon we will visit a nearby old growth stand to practice the survey methods we learned earlier in the day.
This is a free event. To pre-register, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
