CRISP is doing hemlock health and regeneration surveys throughout the Catskills. I am looking to take 1 or 2 volunteers out every trip, which will include bushwacking on mountainous and difficult terrain, perhaps with stream crossings. We will be out for between 4 and 7 hours at a stretch.
You will be trained in GPS data collection, hemlock and hemlock woolly adelgid ID and survey techniques, as well as some general-purpose forest survey techniques (DBH measurements, leaf-crown ratio, etc). Dates are TBD, but would be on weekdays in summer.
