Isolated Ash Grove Citizen Science Monitoring Project
In partnership with Olive Natural Heritage Society, CRISP is working with volunteers to promote monitoring and stewardship of isolated first growth ash stands at high elevations in the Catskills as possible refugia from the emerald ash borer (EAB). Citizen scientists will be responsible for monitoring ash trees along a path to the isolated stands for signs and symptoms of EAB and determining when it is getting close. Resources permitting, these stands will be protected as a genetic resource to potentially reseed the region once the initial wave of EAB has moved through.
