On Friday, June 30, from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m., we will be joined by experts from the Albemarle County/Charlottesville Virginia Cooperative Extension for a walk along the Highland Trails to learn about the invasive Spotted Lanternfly and how to kill its favorite host, the “Tree of Heaven,” Ailanthus altissima. This event is free and open to the public. Participants are asked to assemble in front of the Highland Museum Shop for the event. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for hiking. Insect repellent, sunscreen, and a water bottle are recommended for the hike.
