Island residents who want to learn more about ticks are invited to attend an upcoming information session.

Dr. Greg German, infectious disease physician with Health P.E.I., will be one of the featured guests at a free educational event to help Islanders learn ways to protect and enhance forest bird habitat and avoid tick bites.

Julie-Lynn Zahavich, Island Nature Trust’s stewardship co-ordinator, will share results from an ongoing study into woodland bird communities, with a focus on forest-nesting species at risk, the Canada Warbler and the Olive-sided Flycatcher.  

Zahavich will also provide tips for woodlot owners who want to protect and enhance habitat for forest-nesting birds.

Sponsored by the P.E.I. Woodlot Owners Association, the session is open to woodlot owners, forestry workers, watershed groups, citizen scientists and everyone who loves spending time outdoors.
