Member Event – Gypsy Moth Field Tour

Your Bruce Grey Woodlands Association is holding a companion field workshop for our recent seminar Forests Under Attack: The History, Dispersal and Management of Gypsy Moth, which was presented through Zoom by the Invasive Species Centre in Sault Ste Marie.

Insect characteristics, hosts and controls will be discussed. Being a spring event, we will include a practical demonstration of a Modified Kaladar Plot (MKP), the approved method of forecasting gyspy moth populations in Ontario. See how well you do in spotting the egg masses!

Time & Date: 1:00 pm on Saturday April 17. A rain or shine event! POSTPONED DUE TO PUBLIC HEALTH RESTRICTIONS

Guides: Susan McGowan – retired forest health technical specialist with MNRF and Kevin Predon – forester with Bruce County

Where: Bruce County Culross Tract. See attached map for location and parking.

Conditions: The forest has recently been logged so will be rough and possibly wet. Please dress appropriately.

Member Numbers: The event will be limited to 15 members. If demand warrants, a second guided tour will be organized for 2:30 PM the same day.

Please register in advance at jcoles@gbtel.ca

We will follow all COVID-19 protocols in place at that time.

We’re looking forward to a great day.
