UCI and the University of California’s Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources are co-hosting a regional workshop on the Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer (PSHB), a tiny non-native beetle that has invaded Southern California and is currently threatening tens of thousands of trees throughout the region. This invasive species is quickly reaching epidemic proportions and has widespread environmental, economic, and esthetic implications.
The workshop will feature speakers involved at the forefront of researching the PSHB, potential responses, and urban forest management. It will provide an opportunity for scientists, land managers, public agencies, and practitioners to better understand the regional impact of PSHB and its potential management.
The $25 per person workshop fee includes lunch, refreshments and reserved parking.
Please register no later than Thursday, September 3, to ensure your choice of lunch and arranged parking.
