Come stay with us at Cedar House and Yurts and attend the HemlockFest November 7,8 and 9th to help save the Hemlock Trees. Enjoy great music, exhibits and much more.
HemlockFest is a benefit music festival to raise awareness and funds to help save the eastern and Carolina hemlock trees. Funds raised will be used for support of laboratories that rear adelgid-devouring beetles and for research and education on this issue. Three labs in Georgia are currently in need of support: one at the University of Georgia, another at Young Harris College, and the newest one at North Georgia College.
Our efforts in 2006 largely contributed to the establishment of the predator beetle-rearing lab at the University of Georgia. The Young Harris lab has done a fantastic job from a small facility and is expanding its operation. And the lab at NGCSU has already released almost 50,000 beetles into local forests.
