Ash trees throughout the region are under severe threat due to the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).  In response to the growing interest in protecting the future of ash trees, John Daigle and his team of graduate researchers working together as the Ash Protection Collaboration Across Wabanakik (APCAW), are organizing a multi-part training series in 2023. This series will share information about how to care for ash in ways informed by current research and Wabanaki priorities, and will cover everything from ash inventorying, to seed collection and storage, to fostering ash regeneration.

On March 6th from 1-2 pm over Zoom, APCAW is holding a kickoff event called Introduction to the Ash Protection Collaboration across Wabanakik Training Program to welcome attendees into the series, introduce key organizers and point people for information, and present the schedule of programs for the coming year. We will also show and share the website as a landing pad for all program and ash-related information and hold a Q&A.

Please sign up here and we will send you a Zoom link and Google calendar invitation.

We hope to have statewide participation of people representing land trusts, Tribes, federal and state agencies, foresters, private landowners, educators, loggers, and anyone interested in protecting the future of ash trees. Feel free to share this event widely with anyone you think may be interested.
