Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday April 8th at 7:00 for our regular monthly program.

Local Master Naturalist, Certified Arborist and Licensed Tree Expert, Shawn Walker, will be presenting on the Emerald Ash Borer, how they are affecting trees in our area and things that you can do to protect your trees at home. 

The Emerald Ash Borer is a beetle native to Asia and Eastern Russia. Outside its native range it is highly invasive and has a devastating impact on ash tree populations.
The insect was first detected in the U.S. in Michigan in 2002. Scientists believe it probably first arrived here in the 1990s, in packing crates from Asia. By now it has spread and killed uncounted millions of trees throughout the Eastern U.S. and Canada, and as far west as Colorado and as far south as Georgia.
It was first found in West Virginia in 2007 and is now a major problem here.

Admission is free, no registration is needed and everyone is welcome to attend.
