Event Description

To help cut down on the number of ticks present in parks, backyards and other natural areas, towns on Long Island are turning to the bobwhite quail for assistance. The bobwhite quail is a ground hunter with a large appetite, and its daily menu consists of insects such as beetles, grasshoppers, caterpillars, spiders, and ticks. This makes it the perfect weapon for towns, parks, and communities to use in the fight against tick infestations. The quail is a way to deal with insects that carry diseases that could harm our residents and our pets in a way that would not add toxins to the environment. Join us for this very informative presented by wildlife biologist Eric Powers.
