Organizer

Because of the extensive forest services industry across the state, Michigan is at an exceptionally high risk for the introduction of invasive forest pests that can cause substantial damage to our native ecosystems and economy. A wide variety of products are shipped here from around the globe, and these products can harbor unwanted guests.

Join Dr. Sara R. Tanis, a post-doctoral research associate at Michigan State University as she checks a variety of traps set at the Reffitt Nature Preserve in East Bay Township. Following these checks and an explanation of Dr. Tanis’ work and goals, GTRLC Preserve Steward Steve Lagerquist will lead a hike of the 106-acre preserve, which features critical ecological features and boasts a high level of biodiversity.

Hike length is about 1.5 miles. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. To RSVP visit our website: www.gtrlc.org or call 231.929.7911.
