Spotted Lanternfly

East Goshen Township Parks and Rec Department needs your help with an insect species that has been plaguing our area and is threatening our native tree species! Jason Lang and summer intern Gabrielle Long are kicking off the Spotted Lanternfly campaign with a brief survey. Please refer to the flyer below for more information. This flyer is also posted in East Goshen Township Park at the bulletin boards located at the restrooms near Hicks Pavilion and the pollinator garden. *Survey will CLOSE by 4PM this Friday June 21st*

In addition to the survey, the township is providing numerous resources that will guide you on how to effectively identify and manage infestations. Stop by the township office to pick up educational brochures and scrape cards. Gabrielle has been managing her own Spotted Lanternfly citizen data collection project and encourages you to check out her page: Spotted Lanternfly.

Residents interested in contributing to this data collection project, residents who are currently experiencing symptoms of an infestation, or have knowledge of current infestations occurring within the township are strongly encouraged to contact Gabrielle Long by phone:
