Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an invasive insect that is impacting Eastern Hemlock trees throughout our region. In this training, join one of the New York State Hemlock Initiative’s experienced field technicians as they introduce you to HWA, inform you how to identify it, and show how you can contribute to growing research as a citizen scientist.
The training will include a short hike followed by a presentation on the HWA Phenology Project, a citizen science project with the goal of tracking the seasonal development of hemlock woolly adelgid. This project helps researchers understand the cyclical and regional differences in HWA phenology throughout the infested range of hemlock and help inform biological control management decisions. Please come prepared dressed for a short walk before the presentation.
