Lingering Ash Citizen Science Training
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, 2019
The Sycamore Room at The Morton Arboretum


Researchers at the Northern Research Station of the US Forest Service in Ohio have identified native green ash trees with a type of resistance to Emerald Ash Borer in nearby states, and they call them "Lingering Ash." The Morton Arboretum is contributing to this project by partnering with the Ecological Research Institute of New Paltz, NY to hunt for the Lingering Ash of Illinois.

Jonathan Rosenthal and Dr. Radka Wildova will train foresters, extension educators, and other outreach personnel to work with volunteers using citizen science materials. Seating is limited to 30 attendees — register ASAP!

Workshop topics will include:  

  • Using anecdata, an online data collection and mapping app
  • Scouting for presence of EAB
  • Identifying signs of mortality in green ash trees
  • Identifying Lingering Ash

This workshop is free! Bring your own lunch or buy one for $10.
