Learn how insect pests have unique adaptations that can cause threats to our woodland ecosystem. We will show you how to conduct a tree inventory and risk analysis for future pest threats of trees in a given location. Identification and life history information for beneficial and invasive insects will be provided. Although targeted to teachers of grades six through eight, teachers of other grade levels are welcome to attend but may need to adapt the information as appropriate. Professional Development Hours are available. Sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, this workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program.
