TICKS & TICK-BORNE DISEASE PRESENTATION

  • Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Ticks and tick-borne diseases are on the increase and forest owners, farmers, gardeners and outdoor recreationalists are particularly vulnerable. In addition to Lyme, other diseases, including Anaplasmosis, Powassan and Babesiosis are showing up in New York State and can be debilitating or fatal. Join us and learn about the life cycle of ticks, its habitat requirements, how to protect yourself from being bitten, and early symptoms of tick-borne disease.

This program will be presented by Kenneth Smith, Executive Director for Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Chenango County and is co-sponsored by the Southern Tier Chapter of the New York Forest Owners Association and CCE of Broome County.  Admission is free and the public is welcome.
