Landowners learn how to spot mountain pine beetle

The first of two mountain pine beetle sessions hosted by Yellowhead County drew a light crowd on Feb. 2.

Twelve Wildwood and area residents attended the open house presentation at the community hall. Although the turnout was small, Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) mountain pine beetle information officer Heather Hawkins was impressed with the quality of questions presented.

"They seemed to be a relatively informed group of people," Hawkins said.
