To educate those possibly affected by the Spotted Lanternfly, the Snyder County Conservation District will be holding a mini-workshop on February 23 at the Shade Mt. Winery beginning at 9AM. Speakers from Penn State Extension and PA Department of Agriculture will each present a program and will be available to answer any questions. The approximately 2-hour session is free but please call or email to reserve seating since space may be limited. Call 570-837-3000 Ext 114 for more information or email cbingman@ptd.net.
