Allegheny Outfitters to Host Free Hemlock Tree Conservation Programs

Posted on Jan 30, 2020

Want to show your love for our local forests? During the week of Valentine’s Day, partners of the High Allegheny Hemlock Conservation Partnership and Allegheny Forest Health Collaborative will join Allegheny Outfitters in Warren, PA for two events focusing on the invasive pest known as Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) which is threatening our native Eastern Hemlock Trees. On Thursday February 13th, this collaborative will lead a training session at Allegheny Outfitters from 6-7:30pm. And on Saturday, February 15th conservation staff from the Roger Tory Peterson Institute will join Allegheny Outfitters for a hike at the Morrison Trail to instruct interested participants on how to survey for HWA and report their findings. The group will meet at the trailhead on Route 59 at 10:30am. These programs are free of charge and all are welcome to attend!
