Help Map Ponderosa Pine Decline

October 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

Flathead Valley Community College natural resource conservation and management students will host training for a new citizen science mapping effort to investigate the decline of ponderosa pine trees in the Flathead Valley. From Bigfork to Whitefish, ponderosa pines have been under attack, namely by the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae).

This effort will assist students, researchers, and natural resource managers in their understanding of the distribution of pine decline as well as individual tree and forest characteristics that may influence resiliency.

Please join us on October 18th in Ross Hall 166 at FVCC at either 2pm or 5:30pm. Volunteers only need to attend one timeslot. For more information, please contact Tim Eichner at 406-756-3898 or teichner@fvcc.edu.

This effort is partly funded by the FVCC Foundation and is a joint effort between FVCC and the Flathead Lake Biological Station.
