EAB Volunteer Training: Canton

Event date and time
July 25, 2018 - 6:30 PM to July 25, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Emerald ash borer was confirmed in St. Lawrence County last August and is already on the way to becoming a public safety concern. Infested trees can die in 1-3 years, and are at risk of falling on homes and powerlines. Join us for a free workshop and walk on the Remington Trail at Partridge Run in Canton to learn how you can help slow the spread by monitoring trees near you.

Volunteers will add ash trees in towns and villages to a new public visual database to help The St. Lawrence County Emerald Ash Borer Task Force monitor the spread of EAB. The survey is digital and takes 5 minutes per tree. At this training, we’ll cover A) signs of EAB, B) ash tree identification, and C) current strategies to slow the spread. Samples of EAB adults, larva, and larval bark galleries will also be available. Please contact info@natureupnorth.org with questions and to rsvp.
