Dr. Mark C. Whitmore, Department of Natural Resources Forest Entomologit at Cornell University. “HWA has been a huge problem in the south but there is promise emerging for long-term control with predators for biological control, however this will take years to fully develop. The important thing is to ﬁnd emerging infestations early and implement short term management to slow the spread and buy valuable time to build our biocontrol capacity.”
Cathy Pedler, Director of Conservation, Adk Mountain Club
Jamie Brown, Executive Director of the Lake George Land Conservancy. “The HWA outbreak at Prospect Mountain shows that this powerful invasive is now here in the Adirondacks and, unfortunately, right here in the Lake George watershed.”
Warren Rosenthal, Conservation Manager, Lake George Land Conservancy
This is your opportunity to learn about this horrible outbreak happening in your own back yard through video presentations, hand-outs and a Q&A session with the experts.
We encourage you to attend this meeting and spread the word to your neighbors!
Meeting sponsored by the Town of Hague.
