City media event on Lyme-disease causing black-legged tick

There will be a black-legged tick media event Thursday at Morningside Park to share information about the City’s tick surveillance program and offer tips on how to prevent Lyme disease. What can we say.  Be there. As part of the event, media will be provided with a demonstration on how ticks are collected from the environment through a process known as tick dragging. It starts at 10 a.m. at 390 Morningside.
