Join us this Friday afternoon for our first hemlock woolly adelgid survey of the season! As a part of the Hemlock Conservation of the High Allegheny Plateau Project, led by the U.S. Forest Service and The Nature Conservancy, RTPI and JCC adopted South Valley State Forest to survey and contribute information to these agencies as well as the Department of Environmental Conservation. Join us as we survey two sites on the state forest lands. We will meet in the RTPI parking lot promptly at 12:30 to carpool and meet on-site around 1:00pm. For those meeting on-site, please meet near the bridge on Sawmill Run Road approx. 42°02.511’N 079°00.580’W. For more information and directions to South Valley State Forest please visit: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/68293.html

If you plan to join us please remember to bring snowshoes, the snow is deep out there! Also, if you are interested in joining us later this season, visit http://rtpi.org/events-exhibits/upcoming-events/ for upcoming dates. We hope to see you soon and thank you in advance for your interest in hemlock conservation!
