Asian Longhorned Beetle and Emerald Ash Borer have made their way to Massachusetts, threatening the ecological and recreational services our forests provide.
Join Greg Goodfellow, Forest Pest Outreach Coordinator for the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, for a hands-on workshop where you’ll
use real specimens and infested wood to learn how to identify these invasive forest pests and the tree damage they cause. You’ll also learn about how
you can help stop the spread of these and other invasive pests and what free resources are available to aid you in your efforts.
RSVP by March 31st to Linda Alvord at 413.625.9151 or email@example.com
