About the Event

To combat this invasive insect, we need volunteers to “adopt” one or more trees on the Club grounds.  Adopting means coming as frequently as possible over the next few weeks, between 4 and 7 pm if possible, to remove the caterpillars from under the burlap that has been placed on our affected trees.  Removal requires you to bring a container (like a large yogurt container) filled half-way up with water and a few drops of dish detergent, into which you should brush the caterpillars  using an old toothbrush, tweezers, or a stick.  It is important to wear gloves as the caterpillar hairs are an allergen and can cause a rash.
