Emeral Ash Borer Meeting

March 15, 2011 0 Comments

Last year Emerald Ash Borer was found in Iowa for the first time, in Allamakee County.  If you are wondering if it will arrive in your neighborhood, and if it does what do we do about it you have an opportunity to learn.

There will be three informational meetings on Thursday, March 31, 2011.  The first will be at 9:30 AM in Tama Hall, room 107 on the Hawkeye Community College Campus.  The second is at 1:30 PM at the Civic Center in Waverly and the third will be at 5:30 PM at the Civic Center in Parkersburg.  Preregistration for the Parkersburg program is requested. 

Mark Shour, Iowa State Extension Entomologist, and Robin Pruisner, State Entomologist with Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, will start the interactive program by providing an overview of the pest.  They will take questions from the audience to answer specific questions and concerns.

The programs are sponsored by Black Hawk, Bremer, Butler and Grundy County Extension and are free and open to the public.  For more information or to preregister for the Parkersburg program, contact Bremer County Extension at 319-882-4275, Butler County Extension at 319-267-2707, Grundy County Extension at 319-824-6979 or the Black Hawk County Extension at 319-234-6811.

There will more than likely be more informational meetings all over Iowa as the year progresses.  As soon as I hear of them, I will post them on the blog.

Dig it!
