Lyme Disease Sign

Posted on Feb 4, 2016

Here is a terrific educational notice that I enjoyed seeing on the wall during a recent veterinarian visit with my dog. Using artwork created by children to help teach the public educates both the visitors and the children who are creating it.

We use the same outreach techniques in the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds with signs drawn by hundreds of school children which we then laminate and post on beaches and offshore islands to let beachgoers and boaters know there are endangered birds nesting in the area. We certainly see less damage to them than other more generic, bland and legally-minded signs that are regularly defaced or torn down. Please DO check yourself and your dog regularly for ticks to prevent a multitude of diseases, and let us know if you see some of “our” signs this summer in Connecticut.
