Building Spotted Lanternfly Traps At Greenbelt Nature Center

On Saturday morning, 40 volunteers stopped by the Greenbelt Nature Center to help build spotted lanternfly traps to stop the spread of the invasive species in Staten Island.

Thanks to program partner Health for Youths and NYC Parks. Special thanks to the Greenbelt Nature Center for hosting this event and to Boy Scout Troop 6 for attending!

Ever grateful for CM David Carr and CM Joe Borelli and their teams for sponsoring these stewardship events.

Below is a tutorial how to build these spotted lanternfly traps in your own backyard:
