Volunteer Training: Survey for Spotted Lanternfly Egg Mass
February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us in kicking off National Invasive Species Awareness Week 2023!
The spotted lanternfly is an invasive insect that was discovered in Virginia in 2018, and has the potential to cause significant economic and ecological impacts. Help us monitor its spread by looking for egg masses in high-risk areas. This training will cover the biology and identification of the spotted lanternfly, its current distribution, how and where to conduct egg mass surveys, and how to record data.
Presentations will be given by Lori Chamberlin and Katlin DeWitt from the Virginia Department of Forestry.
