The Southern Pine Beetle — Shawangunk Ridge Free Public Lecture Series

The Shawangunk Ridge Biodiversity Partnership (SRBP) presents The Southern Pine Beetle, with Rob Cole, NYSDEC Forester.

A major forest pest in the South, southern pine beetle (SPB) was first found infesting trees in New York in 2014. Originally found on Long Island, it has since been detected in the

Hudson Valley at two State Parks- Bear Mountain and Minnewaska. The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), along with partners, is actively managing SPB populations on Long Island and surveying for infested trees in the Hudson Valley. Presentation will cover the arrival and expansion of SPB in NY, the strategies DEC is employing to locate and manage populations, and research projects taking place.

This lecture will take place at SUNY New Paltz Lecture Center, Room 102. For directions and campus maps, see www.newpaltz.edu/map. No parking permit is required at SUNY New Paltz if you park after 6:30 p.m.
