  • Saturday, April 4, 2020, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

CCE Sullivan prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of the communities we serve. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, and due to an abundance of caution, all CCE Sullivan public activities are postponed until further notice. This includes 4-H, Caregiver Resource Center, and Catskills Kitchen activities. We will announce new dates as soon as we have them. Please visit the NYSDOH or CDC COVID-19 website for information on broad preventive measures for you and your family. Be well!

The Spotted Lanternfly is knocking on our door! Japanese Knotweed is tearing down our stream banks! How can we help??! Come find out. Bring your smartphone or tablet and a plant you would like to have identified!

Recognize signs of spotted lanternfly, tree of heaven, and knotweed. Learn to scout and report on iMapInvasives App.

Brenda Miller from CCE Sullivan will demonstrate how to identify the life stages of the Spotted Lanternfly, describe the history of the spreading infestation and discuss ways we can stop them before they get established here in Sullivan County. Jessica Newbern, from the National Park Service, will teach you how to map and report invasive plants and pests using the iMapInvasives app for your phone or tablet and talk about what can be done to begin to contain the spread of Japanese Knotweed.

This program is partially sponsored by the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP) by the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.
