MaMA is an innovative approach that provides hope for conserving ash and mitigating damage from the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), which threatens killing virtually all the ash trees in the area; training includes instruction in MaMA’s citizen-science and land-manager projects to find EAB-resistant trees. The Ecological Research Institute (ERI), under contract with CRISP, is presenting a series of MaMA single-session training workshops at which attendees learn, among other things, how to establish ash mortality monitoring plots for the MaMA Monitoring Plot Network extending throughout the Catskills and beyond.
