Day 1 of the workshop included presentations on:

  • Oak wilt biology

  • The CFIA perspective

  • Surveying and detection of oak wilt

  • Lessons learned from Michigan

  • Oak wilt management in Michigan State Parks

  • Oak wilt vector research

  • Forest health monitoring with citizen science

  • How municipalities can prepare for oak wilt


Day 2 of the workshop had participants visiting oak wilt sites in Michigan.

Visit our oak wilt page to learn more about this invasive pathogen and to view videos of Phillip Kurzeja, “The Oak Wilt Guy”, on the hunt for oak wilt.  



Don't let invasives ruin your garden!

Try planting these and other native species instead! They look great, and they don't threaten Ontario's biodiversity. For more info on what plants are good for your garden check out these Grow Me Instead guides.
