Cook Forest Citizen Scientists Survey Day
Wild Excellence Films (WEF) was in Cook Forest State Park yesterday to film the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) Survey training day. Volunteers learned how to be citizen scientists to identify and report HWA to help park staff continue to battle the greatest threat to Cook Forest. HWA is an invasive insect that has a devastating effect on hemlock trees.
Many thanks to Environmental Education Specialist Dale Luthringer and the awesome volunteers for their work for the park and for agreeing to let WEF film them for our upcoming documentary "Cathedral: The Battle to Save the Ancient Hemlocks of Cook Forest."
