GLA Be Tick AWARE Prevention Program for Camps and Other Youth Organizations

Experts predict a significant increase in the number of infected ticks carrying Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Start your season off right! Take the necessary steps to teach your staff how to be tick AWARE. It is important to establish a tick prevention and Lyme disease awareness safety practice for your program. It’s your duty to provide and maintain tick prevention education.
