You can help protect the Trenton Greenbelt and other areas from invasive species! Join Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust and SLELO-PRISM for a guided hike on Saturday, March 7, from 10:30 am to Noon at the Trenton Greenbelt Trails. This event is free and open to the public. Snacks and beverages will be provided. We will be outside for the entire workshop, so make sure and dress for the weather!
An invasive insect called Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) kills hemlock trees. Hemlocks are a key tree species, and loss of hemlock populations would dramatically reduce the overall health of our forests. At this outing, you’ll learn about:
-Hemlock Tree Identification and Ecology
-Introduction to Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
-HWA Early Detection Survey Techniques
-Reporting Observations Using iMapInvasives Mobile App
-Volunteer Opportunities with TILT and SLELO-PRISM
