Community First Detector: Invasive Pest Detection Workshop
Date/Time: Tuesday, July 14, 2015; 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Location: SUNY Fredonia – Science Center Lecture Hall

Early detection slows the spread of invasive species into new areas and offers the best chance of eradication these pests. You can help reduce the impacts of invasive species by learning how to recognize them and the symptoms they cause. Please join WNY Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM), Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE), and National Plant Diagnostics Network (NPDN) for a Community First Detector Workshop. This educational opportunity is open to anyone concerned about invasive pest introductions and will cover forest pests and pathogens, symptom identification, survey methods, and sample submission protocols.

Participants will receive credits and First Detector certificate upon completion of the workshop and submission of samples (vouchers will be provided). Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Fee of $30 per person. For more information and to register, please contact Carri Marschner at cam369@cornell.edu or 607-225-6026.

Terrestrial (living on land) invasive species include:
• Animals, like emerald ash borer and Eurasian boar
• Plants, like Japanese stiltgrass and giant hogweed
• Diseases, like oak wilt and chestnut blight

Join CCE and Greene Land Trust for a walk at Brandow Point to search for invasive plants and insects. We will explore native, non-native and invasive species. Not all non-native species are considered invasive species. So what is an invasive species? Invasive species are defined as species that are non-native to the ecosystem under consideration and whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. Invasive species can be plants, animals, and other organisms such as microbes. This activity is offered during Invasive Species Awareness Week and in partnership with Greene Land Trust. Brandow Point is a spectacular property on the Hudson
River – a beautiful spot for a walk on a summer Saturday and then pick up your chicken barbecue. Tickets are being sold by the Greene Land Trust from their office – 270 Mansion Street, Coxsackie, NY.
