NYS DEC and USDA Need Volunters for Emerald Ash Borer Surveys

While not strictly a lake issue, this is certainly a watershed issue - Michael -

DEC and USDA are calling all volunteers and interested groups to assist with their 2009 Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) trapping surveys. Your help is requested in the following ways:

1. hang EAB traps in ash trees (June) (this can range from 1 to many traps, depending on your interest/availability)

2. check the traps mid-season and send in any target beetles (July)

3. remove the traps at the end of the season and send in any target beetles (August) 

Training will be from 9-2 on Tuesday, May 26th at the DEC in Ray Brook. 

If you are unable to attend the training but are interested in helping, arrangements can be made to get you the information and supplies you need. 

Please email Tom or Jason with your interest:

Tom Colarusso, Thomas.W.Colarusso@aphis.usda.gov
Jason Denham, jpdenham@gw.dec.state.ny.us
