Lyme Action Network Teams Up with Saratoga Farmers’ Market on Tick Prevention and Lyme Disease Awareness Program
The Lyme Action Network is working with Saratoga Farmers’ Market to encourage local youth to become better educated about tick-bite prevention and Lyme Disease through a poster project and education session at the market.
Details of the poster project are here.
On June 18 at 4 p.m., the market will host Lyme Action Network to offer a “kid friendly” tick talk with all posters being put on display. After that event, the posters will be displayed at the Saratoga Public Library and at the Children’s Museum of Saratoga.
“It’s more important than ever to educate our children about the dangers of tick bites. Kids need to know what ticks look like and that ticks are everywhere—not just the deep woods. We should use repellents when we can. And even when just doing somersaults or light saber fights in the back yard, kids need to remind their parents to do a “tick-check” every day when they come in,” stated Heather Fresh, a local resident with Lyme Action Network.
