Description/Notes: 

The University of Maryland Department of Animal and Avian Sciences, Department of Entomology and University of Maryland Extension are hosting a FREE Pasture Walk Series that will be held throughout the state. The focus of the series will be two-fold: pasture management, as well as education concerning the Asian Longhorned Tick and its potential effects on the our Livestock Industry. These ticks can be found throughout the spring and summer months, and thrive in tall grasses under wet, humid conditions, meaning conditions are ripe for potential infestations. 

We would appreciate your help in getting the word out about this program; a informational flyer and press release have been attached for distribution.
