1854 TREATY AUTHORITY

Ticks Galore

The strawberry picking moon means that the ticks are out in the woods in full force! Here at 1854 we want everyone to be safe out there – wear long sleeve shirts, long pants tucked into your socks, and use that bug repellant. Most importantly, take time to inspect your skin for ticks after a day outside.

Check out the interesting research that Associate Professor of UMD’s Medical College, Benjamin Clarke is doing, following the tick population and the spread of lyme’s disease in the 1854 Ceded Territory in this article from the Duluth News Tribune. 

And pick up your tick kit from an 1854 booth at any outreach event this month.
