Arrowsic Conservation Commission

Battling Browntails

Maine Forest Service's aerial survey of browntail moth infestation suggests the midcoast is in for another heavy summer of the invasive pest. Dr. Ellie Groden of U.Maine has been studying the problem -- supported in part by the town of Harpswell -- and recently gave a presentation in Georgetown describing her progress.
