Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease -—
What You Need to Know
Max Minnerop, MD
Chances are that you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with Lyme or another tick-borne disease. Dr. Max Minnerop, a physician-member of the Medical Advisory Panel of Southampton Hospital’s Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center, will speak about the types of diseases that are carried by the different species of ticks found on Eastern Long Island, and the symptoms, diagnostic tests, and treatment options that are available. Tips on preventing tick bites will also be shared! This is a free event. There will be ample time for Q & A. Everyone will receive a free tick removal kit. This meeting is at Quogue Wildlife Refuge.

Trip Leader: Eileen Schwinn
Migrating song birds will be, hopefully, using the fields and water spots of this hidden gem of a park, to refuel on their journey south. The warblers will be a challenge to spot and ID - no helpful songs to give their presence away, and their fall plumages are usually more subdued - but we may find it to be an interesting walk! Ticks are always a problem, year-round, so be sure to dress accordingly, and bring insect spray. We will meet along the driveway entrance - near the open field, and begin our walk. For information, please contact Eileen Schwinn at email@example.com, or by cell phone
on the day of the walk, 516-662-7751.
This park entrance is on Sound Avenue, just east of Chapel Lane in Riverhead.
