Training for the raising of Galerucella beetles

Sessions on June 28th & 29th, 9 AM – 1 PM

Location: 680 Hudson Road Sudbury, MA

Description: The SuAsCo CISMA would like 10 organizations within the SuAsCo watershed to rear Galerucella beetles in 2014 and 2015 as part of the Nyanza settlement. Each organization will receive around $7,000/ year to help with the cost of supplies, staff time, and seasonal help if needed. The Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge will be hosting a teaching rearing facility in 2013 from March – June so interested parties can learn the process and gain some “hands on” experience.

If this is a project your organization would like to be involved in, register with Amber by email or phone (978-443-4661 x33). As always, please contact me if you have ANY questions!
