Hitchcock Oak Inventory Project Training

April 20
7:00PM
Hitchcock Nature Center

The sprawling mighty oak tree remains a symbol of the American Midwest but a new, swift, and little understood disease has recently emerged in our area with the potential to eliminate these iconic trees from our landscape. Join us for the first of three training sessions for a volunteer project aimed at understanding and alleviating the effects of this new threat. Training sessions will cover a variety of topics and include field training sessions to help volunteers practice their skills and become independent project volunteers. Topics covered will include the project and field data collection app, oak ecology, and oak fire wounds. Portions of the training will occur out of doors and off-trail, so please dress appropriately. This event is free but pre-registration is required as space is limited, visit www.pottconservation.com to register online.
