Ornamental Tree and Shrub ID and Insect Walk
September 22 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM$50
Studying for the MCH, MCLP, or MCA exam? Want some hands-on experience identifying significant landscape plants and their insect pests? This program will be helpful for participants looking to either prepare for one of the exams or to expand your offerings for your clients. Join Dr. Mandy Bayer, Extension Assistant Professor at UMass Amherst, and Tawny Simisky, UMass Extension Entomologist, for a walk around the grounds at one of Massachusetts’ beautiful botanic gardens. This walkabout will focus on trees and shrubs with particular seasonal interest as well as insect pests that are active and suggestions for management. Dress for walking; held outdoors rain or shine.
