Feb 19, 2020 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada): How to Engage the Public in Emerald Ash Borer Research
Join us for a one-hour free webinar: Ignazio Graziosi, Dr. Lynne Rieske-Kinney, and Dr. Lee Townsend developed an “emerald ash borer discovery trail” in a natural park in Kentucky, where citizens are taught the insect’s biology, the impacts it causes to native woodlands, the management strategies under evaluation in the park, and the costs associated with the loss of ecosystem services provided by ash trees. Using their experience as a model, you may be able to set up a program of your own.
