Many of us are familiar with the term EAB or Emerald Ash Borer. It’s been affecting so many of our trees in MN in the recent years. If you would like to learn more about it, we found some free workshops that are open to the public.
The workshops are put on by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) Staff. With three different locations there just might be one near you. The three locations are: Duluth, Clearwater and one in the Twin Cities at Fort Snelling.
Duluth: April 2-4
Clearwater: March 28-29
More specifics on EAB and the workshops:
Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) Staff will be leading free EAB Field Workshops in the Twin Cities Metro Area, Clearwater, and Duluth. 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. Maps and parking instructions will be provided by email with registration confirmation.
