Fort Lewis College to live stream presentation on spruce beetle epidemic

DURANGO, CO – Fort Lewis College is hosting a San Juan National Forest presentation on the spruce beetle epidemic and its impact on Colorado forests. The event will be held on Tuesday, March 17 at 6 p.m. in the Student Union Vallecito Room at FLC. Everyone is invited to this free event.

The Colorado State Forest Service’s 2014 Report on the Health of Colorado’s Forests cited the spruce beetle as the state’s most widespread insect threat. An estimated 485,000 acres of forest were impacted by the beetle in 2014.

Tom Eager from the U.S. Forest Service’s Gunnison Research Center will share his expertise on the spruce beetle and lead a discussion with other experts on the present and future of Colorado’s forests. The discussion will include what can be done to help protect forests from spruce beetles.

The presentation will be live streamed on Fort Lewis College’s YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/FLCDurango) and can be viewed directly at http://youtu.be/DXHZcybbQQo.
