Event Description

Join LEAF staff and DNR experts over your lunch-hour as we explore different topics in the world of forestry. Each online session will provide background content about the day’s scheduled forestry topic, mention career pathways for students, and allow question and answer time for participants to interact with the presenter.

Wisconsin’s forests are under threat from invasive insects, diseases, plants, and worms. Mike Hillstrom, a DNR Forest Health Specialist, will discuss the invasive pests causing the most damage currently and how to manage them, as well as new pests to watch for and report. June is Invasive Species Action Month, so help students plan now for what they can do to prevent invasive species in Wisconsin.

Presented by Mike Hillstrom, Forest Health Specialist
