Event flyer here.

Join NYFOA Capital District Chapter and the Landis Arboretum on Saturday September 25th 1-3pm for our program:

Don’t Get Ticked in the Forest

Avoiding Lyme and other tick-borne diseases requires avoiding a tick bite! Join the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program's Joellen Lampman as she talks about the different ticks in our area and their biology, the diseases they carry, and how to protect yourself and others from being bitten. We’ll put together tick drags for monitoring tick activity and then head outside to practice performing a tick drag and identifying ticks in the field.

Joellen Lampman is Community IPM Extension Support Specialist with the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program at Cornell University. With a degree in Natural Resources from Cornell University, Joellen is a lifelong environmental educator. At the New York State IPM Program, she utilizes the clear knowledge-based, decision-making process of IPM to teach ecology and make a difference, one property at a time. In some circles she is also known as the tick lady.

The presentation will be in the Arboretum’s Meeting House with outdoor activities on the grounds. There is no formal admission fee, but we think a donation to the Landis Arboretum, our host, would be a fitting way to thank them for the use of their facility. The program is open to all, but pre-registration is required, as seating capacity is limited. For Questions or to pre-register, contact Carol at

The Landis Arboretum is located at 174 Lape Rd. Esperance, NY 12066.
