Penn State Extension Entomologist Greg Hoover and Plant Pathologist Gary Moorman, plan to take us on a tour at Cedar Beach Park in Allentown, discussing pests and diseases along the way. This is a great chance to learn from the professors and interact with your professional colleagues.

From 1:00 - 3:00p.m. we will look at the ornamental plants in the park to:

  • Examine pests and diseases close-up, and review their life cycles.
  • Discuss options for management.
  • Interact with Penn State Specialists and network with other green industry professionals.
Bring your questions!

An optional 30 minute core pesticide safety update session will begin immediately after the pest walk. Certified Arborist Randy Fey will talk about in-field trouble shooting and repair of sprayers, and the safety equipment you need to have on hand for the job.  If you need core credits, plan to stay for this session. (This will start at approximately 3:15p.m.)
 
Pesticide Credits apply.
 
This walk also qualifies for 3 PCH CEUs.
