From 7pm until 8pm

It would be hard for anyone in the Mount Washington Valley to miss the devastation of caused by the spongy moths the past two summers. The caterpillars defoliated 50,000 acres of forest in the state, with much of that area located in the Valley. While the insect prefers oak, they are capable of feeding on over 300 species of tree. What is in store for next year and what, if anything, can be done to reduce the impact of these invasive insects? UNH Cooperative Extension Forester, Wendy Scribner, will discuss the role and impact of spongy moths in addition to several other invasive insect concerns, including the emerald ash borer and hemlock woolly adelgid.
