Keeping the Legacy Alive

Get Involved

You can help in several ways:


1- Know how to identify a hemlock that has HWA (cotton-like sacs on the underside of the branch where the needles meet the stem) and have a watchful eye when you are out walking in your favourite hemlock forest. Report your finding thru iNaturalist and the Healthy Hemlocks Project If you are not an iNaturalist user, send us a picture at or Ron Neville at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency


2- Community Groups are starting to treat trees across the province. And they often require volunteers. Our calendar on the Home Page lists the projects we know about (your project isn't there??? Let's us know about it!)


3- The Medway Community Forest Co-op's Hemlock Conservation Program utilizes volunteers in the Hemlock Heroes program to assist with HWA treatments. They also have free, training days.
