The Search for the Spotted Lanternfly
Join us for a hands-on workshop to help you prepare for the Spotted Lanternfly, a new, invasive insect in Prince William County. The Merrimac Farm Chapter of The Virginia Master Naturalists and Prince William County Staff will lead participants on an hour walk to talk about Spotted Lanternfly ecology, host tree species, and steps that you can take to keep your trees healthy and resilient.
Following the walk, materials will be provided to construct your own mesh circle trap to help monitor for the spotted lanternfly on your property. A paper model activity will be available for kids (and adults!) along with additional related resources.
