North Shore Land Alliance To Hold Presentation On Ticks And Mosquitoes

Do you love nature and want to feel comfortable and safe being outdoors? Join the North Shore Land Alliance on either Thursday, March 5 or Thursday, March 12 for an important presentation called “Ticks and Mosquitoes: Avoid Their Bites.”

The number of people affected by tickborne diseases in the United States has more than doubled in the last twenty years according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann, an entomologist working in community integrated pest management at Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, will discuss the different tick species found on Long Island, the variety of diseases they carry, and most importantly, how to avoid being bitten by both ticks and mosquitoes.

Head to the Locust Valley Library, located at 170 Buckram Rd., or on March 5 at St. John’s Episcopal Church, located at 1670 Route 25A in Cold Spring Harbor. Both presentations will run from 7 to 9 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. Advance registration is strongly recommended at www.northshorelandalliance.org/events.
