Longhorned beetle study in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury large web iconShrewsbury – Residents are invited to a focus group to discuss the effects of the Asian Longhorned Beetle on their community Tuesday, July 16, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Wednesday, July 17, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Shrewsbury Public Library, 609 Main St.

Clark University's Human-Environment Regional Observatory (HERO), with support from the National Science Foundation, is conducting a study beetle's impact on residential communities in the quarantine zone. The focus group is intended to understand residents’ reactions to and perceptions of the beetle, particularly those residents who have been affected by tree cutting or replanting.

Participation in the study is confidential and completely voluntary. No more than two residents per household may attend. Refreshments will be provided.

To attend, register by July 5 by email to beetleheroes99@gmail.com or calling 203-499-7889. Participants will choose one of the two available dates. Those unable to attend may still participate by e-mail or telephone.
