Forest Pest First Detectors

EABCostumeIn response to the growing threat of invasive pests to Vermont's forests, the Vermont's Forest Pest First Detectors (FPFD) Program was established to support local leaders with ongoing outreach, education, and local planning and survey efforts. First Detector volunteers are Vermont’s first line of defense against pest infestations in the state and their own community. 

For more information about and up-to-date news on the FPFD Program, see vtinvasives.org
