FREE WORKSHOP – Emerald Ash Borer & Asian Longhorned Beetle Workshop For Citizen Scientists

Saturday, August 14, 2010 – 9:00am to 1:00pm Meet at the Bradford Academy. Field portion will take place on town land. Please register by Monday, August 9, 2010 by calling Monique Priestley at 802-222-1909.

Volunteers will be trained to survey for these two invasive forest pests and provide outreach to the public. This workshop will also serve as a basic train-the-trainer class for those who are interested in teaching other volunteers to survey for these pests.

Students learn about the threat we face from non-native forest pests, how to identify the various life stages of alb and eab, and how to recognize signs and symptoms of both pests on infested trees.

Approximately three hours classroom and one hour field. Dress casual and wear good walking shoes or sneakers for the field portion.
