Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Field Training

Join the Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) and the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program for a guided snowshoe walk to learn how to identify hemlock trees, survey for hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), and report your findings in iMapInvasives as well as to refresh your snowshoe and winter safety skills. This event is free and open to the public. This field event is designed to gain experience after participating in an HWA webinar. Watch the February 16th webinar here to learn the basics of HWA before you join us in the field.
