WORTHINGTON — Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) staff will lead free Emerald Ash Borer field workshops March 17-18 at Pioneer Village in Worthington.
These hour-long outdoor workshops will provide an opportunity to get a firsthand look at EAB-infested trees and will assist the community in becoming familiar with early detection.
General EAB biology, distribution, management, regulation and treatment will also be covered. Workshops are provided free of charge through support from the US Forest Service. Attendance is limited to 25 people or less for each session.
Participants should dress for the weather as the workshops are held entirely outside. Bring a pair of binoculars, and be aware that no restroom facilities are available on-site.
Continuing education credits are provided.
