Invasive Species Workshop: Spotted Lanternfly: Understanding the Ecology and the Threat
Join us for this free workshop in partnership with PRISM (Partnership for Invasive Species Management) and RIT’s Capstone students. The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive pest from Asia that threatens a wide variety of plants such as grapevine, hops, maple, walnut, fruit trees, and others. This insect could impact New York’s forests as well as the agricultural and tourism industries. This workshop will teach participants how to identify invasive species and use iMapInvasives to report findings in their region.
Location: Conservation Learning Center classroom, across from the Center for Biodiversity Exploration.
Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
Registration for this workshop has closed. If you are still interested in participating, please contact Rhonda McDonald at 585.336.7214.
