Otsego Now, Main and Dietz streets, Oneonta. iMapInvasives is a reporting tool for invasive species that covers the entirety of New York State, connecting all invasive species managers.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid

April 20, 2-4 pm. Location: Columbia-Greene Community College, Main Building, Lecture Hall, #202. Hemlocks are one of the most important foundation tree species in the northeast forest. The role they play is crucial to the regions they exist in. Hemlocks are also under attack by the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA), an invasive insect that is now established in our region. Come and learn about the biology, ranges and management options for dealing with this invasive pest as well as how to prioritize hemlock conservation based on ecosystem services they provide. How to report where the HWA is, in order to help others better control the spread, will also be addressed. Co-sponsors include Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties, Columbia-Greene Community College, the Capital Mohawk Partnership for Regional Invasive species management, the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership, the Columbia Land Conservancy, and the iMapInvasive Project Team.
