Living with Nature Part 1: Ticks and Lawn Care (Cutchogue)

Notice an abundance of ticks in your lawn? Well, you are not the only one! Most of the East End of Long Island experiences the nuisance of ticks. Before you break out the chemicals, come to the Downs Farm Nature Center to learn alternative options that keep ticks away. We will discuss redesigning your lawn to prevent ticks whilst attracting native pollinators, such as butterflies. We will also bust some tick myths and go over what to do if you are bitten. Those who join us will have the chance to make their own bug repellent, keeping both ticks and chemicals off you! Free event. For reservations or more information, please contact Christine Tylee at ctylee@eastendenvironment.org.
