Heart of Ellsworth to host Community Conversation – Tick Talk
Ellsworth – Heart of Ellsworth is pleased to announce the next offering in its 2018 Community Conversations series. Tick Talk will be held Wednesday, April 18, at 5:30 p.m. at Flexit Cafe & Bakery, 192 Main Street in Ellsworth. The program is open to the public, free of charge.
Our presenter for the April conversation will be Griffin Dill an Integrated Pest Management Professional with University of Maine Cooperative Extension. He coordinates University of Maine’s Tick Identification Program and is currently working on a Ph.D in tick ecology.
With spring weather and outdoor activities just around the corner, April is a great time to talk about ticks. Dill will touch on how to recognize the different varieties of ticks found in Maine, understanding the life cycle of ticks, learning how ticks move about and ways to reduce your exposure to ticks. According to Heart of Ellsworth executive director, Cara Romano, “Our Community Conversation series is designed to involve the audience, so bring along your thoughts and questions for a lively dialogue with Griffin.”
The series continues on May 23, with a lively presentation on Ellsworth’s Amazing Waterfront co-led by community historian Todd Little-Siebold and City of Ellsworth Harbor Commissioner Adam Wilson. On Saturday, June 30, Heart of Ellsworth presents it second, Taste of Ellsworth, the wonderful outside, community dining experience that was a sell-out in 2017. The series breaks for July and August and returns on September, 19 Downtown living and will conclude with a facilitated, Meet the Candidates Night on October, 17.
