Please Don't Feed the Ticks!

Few things in the great outdoors make folks squirm as much as ticks, and for good reason. Besides being disgusting little critters, the insects can burrow into the skin and suck the blood of the host, whether it be a hiker (you), deer, dog or other animal. Ticks are not only pesky but also can carry dangerous diseases that could infect the host.

Tick prevention is important to keep in mind while hiking or doing other outdoor activities.
Here is some information from the American Hiking Society to help keep you safe while enjoying the outdoors.

Protect yourself against these potentially dangerous insects.

Summer brings warm weather and great hiking. Unfortunately, ticks appreciate the season as much as we do and they pose a serious threat to hiker health. Though ticks themselves seldom cause medical problems, the diseases they transmit can wreak havoc on a hiker’s body. Elrichosis, Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are just a few of the tick-borne pathogens of which hikers should be aware.

Here are a few easy steps to prevent tick-borne illness:

• Determine risk: Spring and early summer are high-risk for ticks because ticks are in an earlier stage of their development, called “nymphs.” Nymphs often carry heavier loads of disease-causing pathogens, and are smaller and harder to spot.

Clean Ocean Action Beach Sweep 2017

 Clean Ocean Action will be holding their Fall Beach Sweeps on Saturday, October 21 in New Jersey with a ton of locations to choose from, lend a hand if you can.

About the Beach Sweeps

In 1985, COA launched the region’s first Beach Sweeps program to rid beaches of unsightly and harmful debris.  COA's Beach Sweeps is one of the longest running cleanups of its kind in the world.  The program has grown from 75 people at one site in 1985, to over 5,000 volunteers in 2016.  Volunteers gather from Raritan to Delaware Bays and along the ocean to clean beaches and waterways, as well as underwater sites.  They join as groups (community, school, business, and organization), families, or individuals.  Participants collect and record valuable data about debris, which is presented in annual reports and used to advance federal, state, and local programs to reduce litter.

Since 1985, over 115,800 volunteers have participated and removed
over 5.9 million pieces of debris from New Jersey's beaches and waterways.
