Join Cary Institute forest ecologist Gary Lovett for a walk on the Cary grounds and learn about the forest pests and diseases that are killing our trees.

Emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle, and hemlock woolly adelgid are just a few of the imported insects which, together, cause more than $2 billion in damages each year. The problem is widespread, with pests present in all 50 states. The Hudson Valley is one of the hardest-hit areas in the country.

Reservation required. The event is free and open to the public. Wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring drinking water.
