The WCA and the Wilmot Conservation Commission are joining forces to host an illustrated talk about ticks and Lyme Disease. At 7 p.m. Thursday, October 12, Alan Eaton, Ph.D., an entomologist with UNH Cooperative Extension, will discuss tick biology, the diseases they spread to humans and how people can minimize the chances of becoming a victim.
“My tick work began in about 1989,” Eaton said. “It was clear that tick problems were increasing here, and we had no publications to answer questions. So I started monitoring, writing and giving presentations.”
The free program is part of the WCA’s Chief David White Memorial Safety and Wellness Series.The WCA is delighted to co-sponsor this and future events with the Wilmot Conservation Commission. The commission supports educational programs to identify health hazards found in nature.
