Media feature UMaine Extension 4-H Tick Project

News Center Maine, Bangor Daily News, Morning Ag Clips, the Advertiser Democrat and the Daily Bulldog featured University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Tick Project, a community science program open to K–12 students to learn about the life cycle of ticks, habitats, species, the pathogens they transmit and how tick migration is tied to climate change. “We get the ticks identified and tested for diseases at no cost to the educator, and that data gets sent back to the educators to share with the youth,” said Carla Scocchi, UMaine Extension 4-H youth development professional.
