Prevention Talk at Ridgefield Library
Tick-borne disease prevention expert Dr. Neeta Connally and Master Gardner Tessa O’Regan are teaming up to teach effective strategies for staying safe from ticks. The program will take place at the Ridgefield Library on Saturday, May 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Whether you’re a weekend gardener or avid hiker, pet owner or parent, you’ll benefit from hearing the latest research on disease prevention along with landscaping tips for reducing ticks in your yard.
This program covers the complete “tool box” of prevention options and provides the perfect opportunity to ask questions. Everyone will leave with a free tick tweezer … just in case. Dr. Connally is an associate professor of biology and oversees the Tickborne Disease Prevention Laboratory at Western Connecticut State University
