Tick information session for outdoor enthusiasts

PEI is currently considered a low risk area for Lyme disease, but if you find a tick attached to you, do you know what to do? 

Dr. Greg German, Infectious Disease Physician with Health PEI, will be one of the featured guests at a free educational event to help Islanders learn ways to protect and enhance forest bird habitat, and avoid tick bites. 

Julie-Lynn Zahavich, Island Nature Trust’s Stewardship Coordinator, will share results from an ongoing study into woodland bird communities, with a focus on forest-nesting species at risk, the Canada Warbler and the Olive- sided Flycatcher. 

Zahavich will also provide tips for woodlot owners who want to protect and enhance habitat for forest-nesting birds.

Sponsored by the PEI Woodlot Owners Association, the session is open to woodlot owners, forestry workers, watershed groups, citizen scientists and everyone who loves spending time outdoors. 

7:00 pm
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
Farm Centre, 420 University Ave.
