Free Tick-Warning Signs Available

Apr 29, 2021 02:33PM ● By Dave Korba
Visits to Pennsylvania parks increased from 37 million in 2019 to more than 46.9 million in 2020.  The PA Lyme Resource Network Dare 2B Tick Aware Program is distributing free Dare 2B Tick Aware tick warning park signs to promote prevention education.

 

Pennsylvania leads the country for Lyme disease cases with 476,000 reported in 2020. A state Department of Environmental Protection study found that the blacklegged (deer) tick, the carrier of Lyme disease, has been found in all 67 counties.

 

The program is working to get these signs posted prominently in parks and athletic fields across Pennsylvania. The goal is to empower people to better protect themselves and stay safer while enjoying the outdoors.

 

Order five free signs at palyme.org/dare-tick-sign-orders. For more information, email [email protected] or visit palyme.org and GetOutdoorsPA.org
