Save The Elms Program (STEP) Citizen Scientist Training
April 20, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Sacramento’s elm trees are disappearing! Join the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento in monitoring our remaining public elms for the problematic Dutch elm disease (DED), a fungal disease with no known cure that has taken the lives of thousands of elms around Sacramento since the 1990s. DED-infected trees will be removed by the City to prevent the further spread of this unwelcome pest. This training will give you the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to monitor elms for DED symptoms using your mobile device. STEP Citizen Scientists commit to monitoring selected elm trees three times between May and October.
