Join local conservationists for a guided walk and talk to learn how you can help protect hemlock trees from an invasive forest pest called hemlock woolly adelgid. We will meet at the Wachtmeister Field Station located on County Rt. 27 in Canton, NY and carpool to Pike Road to the Kip Trailhead. This program will include a hands-on walk component where participants will learn to recognize signs of HWA and report observations using a mobile app, as well as an indoor session with more information about conservation efforts to protect Eastern Hemlock to be held at the Wachtmeister Field Station following the hike.
Visitors are welcome to attend both sessions or just one. This program is presented by Nature Up North, the NYS Hemlock Initiative, and the St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario Partnership for Invasive Species Management.
