“Tick Talk”: Preventing Tick Bites

Please join the Mattapoisett Land Trust and Blake Dinius, Plymouth County Extension Educator and accomplished entomologist, for a “Tick Talk” to learn about preventing tick bites. Blake will teach about tick biology, critical information for preventing bites and disease and will clear up any common misinformation about these bugs. Knowledge and awareness of ticks are crucial for us all to stay safe and healthy year-round!

            The talk will be held at the Mattapoisett Public Library’s community meeting room on Friday July 8 from 3:30 – 4:30 pm. There will be a presentation, plenty of educational materials distributed and ample time to ask questions and talk to Blake at the end of his talk.

            The “Tick Talk” is free and open for people of all ages, including residents of other towns. Start your summer off armed with information to keep you, your family and your pets tick-free. Contact manager@mattlandtrust.org with any questions about the event.
