MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — Join us out at Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County’s Education Center and 4-H Park in Otisville on Tuesday, June 15th at 6:00 P.M. to learn all about ticks and participate in a Tick Blitz! We will start off learning all about tick biology, tick ecology, and how to prevent getting bit. Then we join citizen scientists around the Hudson Valley collecting ticks in order to gain a better understanding of where different tick species are present in the state and track northward expansion of two tick species that have recently been found in New York. This program is free and open to youth ages 8-14. Registration is required! Spots are limited.
This program is part of Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County’s 4-H Programming.
To register, go to our website at www.cceorangecounty.org/events or call Susan Ndiaye at 845-344-1234, Extension 250.
