Invasive Forest Pest Workshop

Invasive Forest Pests- For those interested in learning about the history of invasive pests in Maine, how to identify them, and how to go about reporting an infestation.
The Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) along with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension in Lisbon Falls, Maine will be presenting a workshop as part of the Invasive Forest Pest Outreach Program. This workshop is designed to help residents identify current and potential forest invasive pests and host species, to understand the threats these pests pose, and to learn how to report suspected pest sightings and damage. All participants will receive an information packet with fact sheets, species lists, and other relevant information regarding these three workshop goals.

This workshop provides attendees with the chance to earn free CEU’S from the Society of American Foresters Credits (Category 1-CF:2.0), Maine Board of Pesticide Control Credits (2.0), and the Maine Board of Licensure of Foresters (2.0 category 1).
