Twin Ports Freshwater Folk: Science and Management of Riparian-Stream Connections in Forests Facing Insect Pests


Please register to attend this free event. Subscribe to the Twin Port Freshwater Folk (TPFF) email list for news and updates.


Courtney Larson, postdoctoral researcher for the Environmental Protection Agency's Great Lakes Toxicology and Ecology Division will discuss management of forested riparian (the interface between land and a river or stream) areas affected by pests such as the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Larson will outline the problem, discuss research on EAB effects on streams, then end with management implications and predictions on future riparian forest pests.
