#1)  Hemlock Legacy Project

Postby Neil » Sun Mar 03, 2013 10:20 pm

Dear NTS of the eastern US and Canada,

There is a new opportunity for citizen science that is right up our alley: collecting and preserving hemlock samples before they are lost through the Hemlock Legacy Project - HeLP. There will be an article coming out soon in a mainstream source about it and there was this clip, too:

http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2013/02/saving-the-past-in-dying-trees.html?ref=hp

It will take some time to coordinate the project in its entirety. Most of the coordination will come out of Dr. Amy Hessl's lab at West Virginia University. http://hessl.eberly.wvu.edu/ - there might be a grad student and web page in the fall organizing the project a little more formally. I'll def keep you updated as things develop.

The original article is available below at the open access site of Columbia University. It has recently become CU's policy that its researchers make their publications available to the public - hear, hear! So, download HeLP here:

Dear NTS,

The Hemlock Legacy Project page is now live here: http://www.geo.wvu.edu/hemlocklegacy/

From there you can sign up, nominate sites not on the site list, and get involved in many ways.

The project is just starting to gear up. We are in this for the long haul and it could be complex project to manage. Please HeLP us as you can.

Hi Neil-  Looks like a great project to be part of. I sent them a message about the Old Growth Hemlocks in Wisconsin. Perhaps the trees in that region will be around for a little longer?    Larry

Did this project ramp up in Summer 2013 as planned?  I'm just now hearing about this, but would be very interested in helping.  I've got a few contacts in the Atlanta area that could help out as well.  I've perused the website, but there's no recent updates.  Larry- did they ever reach out to you?
