On Wednesday, October 18, 2006 the Illinois Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture/ APHIS will host an Emerald Ash Borer bark peeling training session at the Campton Forest Preserve in Kane County, IL. The session will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Advance registration will not be required as this is a "drop-in" session. Participants are encouraged to arrive at any time during these hours and can plan to spend as much time as they feel necessary to practice bark-peeling techniques. Draw knives and related safety equipment will be available. Participants will be working with logs infested with the Emerald Ash Borer.
The Campton Forest Preserve is located at 4N379 Town Hall Road, St. Charles, IL (approximately 6 miles west of Randall Road and just south of Rt. 64).
