December Workshops - REGISTRATION OPEN

We're holding two early December trainings on invasive polyphagous and Kuroshio shot hole borer biology, identification, surveillance, and management of infested trees and downed wood. We'll cover these topics in the classroom, then head outside to see infested trees and learn how to identify signs of shot hole borer damage, set up a monitoring program, and sample trees. 

$30.00 Registration fee includes lunch, a ISHB Field Guide, and ISHB Demonstration Kit

Continuing Education Units from DPR have been requested, check back for updates. 

Speakers include Sabrina Drill, UCCE Natural Resources Advisor; Bea Nobua-Behrmann, UCCE Research Scientist; Kim Corella, Forest Pest Specialist, CalFire; and Paul Rugman-Jones, Research Entomologist, UC Riverside.  

Thanks to The Britton Fund, CalFire, and US Forest Service - State and Private Forestry for supporting these workshops.
