Managing for Oak Wilt- West MI Conservation Network
April 27, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Oak wilt is a growing problem of both private and public land managers as well as home owners. This invasive forest pest kills infested oaks and is difficult to manage. Treatment costs can be expensive so it is important to identify early.
Join us at the Wittenbach Wege Center & Wege Natural Area for this two-part program. We will start with a presentation by Heidi Frei, DNR Parks and Recreation Division Forest Pest Specialist. Then, Nick Sanchez, Conservation Easement Stewardship Specialist for the Land Conservancy of West Michigan, will lead a hike to an oak wilt site.
This program is for the general public as well as practitioners.
