"From Hemlock to Knotweed" - Michael Kudich Presents New Discoveries about the History and Ecology of Hemlock in the Catskills".

  • Empire State Railway Museum 70 Lower High Street Phoenicia, NY (map)

Here is your (our!) chance to sit at the feet of Michael Kudich and bask in his knowledge and wonderful process of thought. 

Mr.Kudich's presentation is scheduled to include:

  • Hemlock's arrival in the Catskills about 14000 years ago
  • Five bogs which have lost their hemlocks during the hemlock "crash"
  • Weird and cyclical - new ideas on hemlock ecology
  • The first threat - tanning
  • The second threat - the woolly adelgid, but with detail left to the C.R.I.S.P. folks.

+ maps and diagrams. Coo.
