Gypsy Moth Scout & Scrape-a-thon at Ontario County Park

April 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

When our beautiful lake and watershed are bombarded by multiple threats, many of you ask, “but what CAN I do?” CLWA has a new volunteer opportunity to get some fresh air, learn about the relationship between healthy trees and clean water, and physically remove egg masses of the invasive European gypsy moth before they hatch later this spring!

Volunteer for CLWA’s Gypsy Moth Scout & Scrape-a-thon scheduled for Friday, April 23rd  from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m at Ontario County Park. We will identify and remove gypsy moth egg masses at this family-friendly events held at different parks around the lake with noted infestations. One egg mass can contain 600 to 1,000 eggs, so destroying as many as possible will help in the effort to reduce the spring hatch.

CLWA will provide a short training and materials needed; you provide the interest, personal face masks, and gloves. We will maintain a physically safe distance from each other, wear masks, and enjoy making a dent in the gypsy moth population in an environmentally safe manner.
