Invasive species mapping workshop and more

What's going on in your backyard July 25-31


Spotted lanternfly and invasive species mapping workshop

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — On Friday, August 2, from 10:15 a.m. to 12 noon, the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership will present a workshop at Morgan Outdoors to teach about invasive spotted lanternflies and how to help prevent their spread by finding and recording the locations of their tree-of-heaven host trees.

After a 45-minute lunch break—bring your own—there will be an outing to Mongaup Campground to survey for the tree-of-heaven. This outing will take place from 12:45 to 2:30 p.m.

The training is free, but registration is required. Email Dan Snider at  dsnider@catskillcenter.org with any questions or to RSVP.
