Event Type

The Littleton Conservation Trust and the Littleton Shade Tree Committee are offering a showing of natural beauty on the one hand, and some ‘natural’ threats to the same on the other in a two part presentation in the Couper Room, 7:00pm on February 21.

We’ll begin with threats. Joshua Bruckner, Forest Pest Outreach Coordinator for the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, will present on the Emerald Ash Borer, a recent arrival in the Littleton community. The EAB will significantly change the look of the Common and front yards throughout town, ultimately killing all of our ash trees. Josh will continue with descriptions of several other pests coming our way, including the Spotted Lantern Fly.

On a brighter note, Dustin Neild, LCT Trustee and photographer, will offer stills and videos of wildlife around his Long Lake neighborhood. Many are familiar with wonderful images from LCT and Littleton Trails facebook pages. This is a chance to see more of Dustin’s art at one time and hear the stories behind the images.
