About The Event
Learn about the Ash Protection Collaboration Across Wabanakik (APCAW) and the efforts underway to protect ash trees against the emerald ash borer (EAB), an invasive insect that has had a devastating impact on ash trees elsewhere in the country. We know EAB are confirmed in Maine, but we are learning from its documented impact in other states and from ongoing research to protect ash trees here. Photo by Emily Francis.
