THE HEMLOCK WOOLLY ADELGID THREAT IN THE OWASCO LAKE WATERSHED

May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

EVENT PART OF THE LAKE FRIENDLY LIVING AWARENESS WEEK, MAY 2-8, 2021:

Hemlock trees provide lake-friendly services to our water bodies by shading streams and locking soil in place along shorelines. The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) threatens this native species, and the loss of Hemlocks may unleash sediment and nutrients into our lakes in quantities not previously recorded. Join the Owasco Watershed Lake Association President, Dr. Dana Hall, for a presentation on the tiny aphid-like foreign invasive insect attacking Hemlock trees across upstate New York. Learn about the results of the 2021 Southern Owasco Watershed HWA survey, and current measures being taken to forestall some of the HWA damage.

PRESENTER:

Dr. Dana L. Hall, OWLA President

His career includes contributions to the end-to-end data system for the International Space Station and the modernization of the air traffic control towers across Australia.
