August 2, 2018, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Nicandri Nature Center
The emerald ash borer (EAB), an invasive beetle lethal to native ash trees, has been confirmed in Franklin, St. Lawrence, and parts of Jefferson County. The Ecological Research Institute has developed a program called Monitoring and Managing Ash (MaMA) to help citizens identify ash that may show some natural resistance to EAB. It is believed that these so-called “lingering ash” may hold a genetic key to finding resistant strains of ash, thus saving them from extinction.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County, in cooperation with the Nicandri Nature Center in Massena, is pleased to announce that the Ecological Research Institute will present a MaMA workshop; and attendees will get hands-on field training in using MaMA’s citizen-science and land-manager tools to identify lingering ash, those trees that remain healthy while others around them succumb to EAB. Propagating these potentially EAB-resistant trees is the best hope for ash conservation.
