The Luzerne Conservation District, in partnership with Penn State
Extension, will be hosting a free Spotted Lanternfly Workshop at Wilkes
University’s Henry Student Center on Sept. 26th at 6:30-8pm. With the SLF
population continuing to spread throughout Luzerne County and beyond, we
wanted to provide an opportunity for residents to obtain useful information
on identifying, reporting, and controlling SLF, as well as answer any
questions they may have on the invasive pest. We’re asking that you help us
spread the word by advertising the workshop on your website, social media
outlets (feel free to share our Facebook post), etc.
