Spotted lanternfly (SLF) should concern growers, greenhouse managers, foresters, nursery or christmas tree operators, landscapers, and master gardeners. Businesses and private citizens who travel through quarantine zones need to understand New York’s External Quarantine policy.

Spotted Lanternfly: At Our Doorstep or Already in Our Fields? will take place at the Broome County Regional Farmers Market in Binghamton NY, and is presented by The New York State IPM Program at Cornell University. SLF prevention efforts are also supported statewide by the New York State Departments of Ag and Markets and Environmental Conservation, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the Finger Lakes Institute, and Finger Lakes PRISM.

Experts from across PA and NY will provide updates from Southeast Pennsylvania’s quarantined areas and what is being done to prevent SLF establishment in New York.

Cost is $50 per attendee and includes a catered lunch. Register here.
