Naturalist Nights: Forest Disturbance by Bark Beetles in Colorado
February 10 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 amFree
Weather plays a crucial role in insect and disease activity in Colorado’s forests. Come learn about how changes in temperature and precipitation impact the relationship between bark beetle biology and tree defense mechanisms from Dr. Dan West, a forest entomologist with the Colorado State Forest Service.
In his role as Forest Entomologist for the Colorado State Forest Service, Dr. West works on all forested lands throughout the state, focusing on state and private forests, providing educational opportunities on emerging best issues and best practice treatment options.
This is a free event. Additional information will be sent in your confirmation email.
