The Potomac Valley Audubon Society welcomes Anne Wakeford as she discusses West Virginia Invasive Insects, Fungi and Pathogens.
Invasive insects and fungi have impacted agricultural crops, killed native trees and are beginning to impact amphibians and reptiles. In this talk participants will learn about some of the most common crop insect pests, tree insect pests, fungi and insect tree diseases, fungi tree diseases and amphibian, reptile and mammal fungal and viral diseases.

She is responsible for evaluating the impacts of construction and highways projects to fish, wildlife, and their habitats. In addition she reviews In Lieu Fee projects and Mitigation Banks in the southern part of the state. Within the last year she has given presentations on invasive species to the West Virginia Conservation Agency, WVDNR, West Virginia Division of Highways, and Brooks Bird Club and presented a poster on Invasive Plants and Their Native Look Alikes at Invasive Species Conferences.
