The 2016 Healthy Forest Partnership Annual General Meeting held on February 17, in Bathurst, NB was a huge success with lots of great information and discussion. Many people from across the province attended despite the winter storm that hit the previous day.  During the morning session, presenters talked about the research that has been conducted over the past year and its results. Other highlights included the successful implementation of the new Budworm Tracker – Citizen Science program to monitor spruce budworm, and the projected treatment areas for 2016. The day ended with some good questions and discussion between the attendees and panel of researchers. The location and date of next year’s AGM will be determined in early 2017. Thanks to all that attended!
