Tick Warning Signs
PARTNERING UP TO RAISE AWARENESS!
PA Lyme Resource Network’s Dare 2B Tick Aware™ program, in partnership with Get Outdoors PA, is bringing TICK WARNING SIGNS to our communities. We’re working hard to get these signs prominently posted in parks and athletic fields across Pennsylvania.
We want to empower people to better protect themselves and stay safer while enjoying the outdoors!
From family walks and bike rides at local parks to playing favorite sports at nearby fields, people are getting outdoors … and we want them to know how to better protect themselves from ticks and the devastating diseases they transmit.
Awareness and prevention are more crucial than ever. That’s why we continue our mission to bring tick-borne disease education, support and advocacy to our communities.
Here’s how to order tick warning signs for your local parks and fields:
