Its August, the sun is shining and summer is on!

Yes, its hot and humid, but here in the Catskills, we're surrounded by lakes, ponds and streams. Swimming is permitted in all bodies of water in the Catskill Forest Preserve, so get that suit on and get in there!!

The Public’s Help is Needed to Find the Asian Longhorned Beetle

This is the best time of year to check your trees for signs of the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) – a destructive invasive pest that kills trees.

“Asian longhorned beetle infested trees are safety hazards. You don’t want them on your property because they can drop branches and tree tops, and storm damage becomes much worse,” said Josie Ryan, APHIS’ national operations manager for the ALB eradication program. “So to make sure your trees are healthy, now is the time to go outside and look at them for signs of the beetle.”
