Entry Description
Those who love trees and work with trees can take advantage of several workshops this summer offered through the DNR Division of Forestry’s Community and Urban Forestry program.

The Indiana Community Tree Steward (ICTS) course will be at the Purdue Marion County Cooperative Extension Office at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. ICTS is open to anyone who has an interest in trees and urban forests. The five-week course meets on the evenings of June 21 and 28, and July 12, 19, and 25. Registration is $30 and includes a comprehensive notebook of tree references and tools.

The Forest Pest Identification Early Detector Training workshops are designed to help participants identify signs of tree pests and diseases. The day-long regional workshops will be July 9 in Evansville, July 10 in Greendale, July 16 in Valparaiso, July 18 in Merrillville and July 19 in Chesterton. Registration is $20 and includes lunch. Participants will learn how to identify signs of emerald ash borer, thousand canker disease, and Asian longhorned beetle. Each has the potential to kill millions of trees in Indiana. Speakers include Phil Marshall, state entomologist, and Annemarie Nagle, Purdue entomologist.

The Indiana Urban Forest Council will hold its summer meeting on July 18 at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute. This gathering for urban forestry professionals, enthusiasts and volunteers will focus on Tree Campus USA projects and new tree selection criteria that relates to climate change. Speakers include urban forest professionals from Indiana and the USDA Forest Service.

All the workshops are in partnership with DNR Entomology & Plant Pathology, Purdue Entomology and Purdue Extension. Each is co-sponsored by the Indiana Urban Forest Council and offers continuing education credits for International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborists.

Registration is required in advance for all of these workshops. To register, contact Carrie Tauscher, CUF Volunteer Coordinator, at (317) 591-1170 or ctauscher@dnr.IN.gov.
