What to Bring: Water, Bug Repellent, Camera, Binoculars, Field Guides, and a friend.

Reduce your risk of Tick Encounters by following these tips:
1. Keep to the middle of the hiking trail (Ticks thrive in shady humid areas with leaf   letter and low brush).
2. Check yourslef for ticks numerous times during your walk.
3. Chemically-treated clothing and use of Deet on skin can limit your exposure.
4. Prompt removal of an embedded tick will greatly reduce the chances of the tick   transmitting disease. Use a pair of pointed tweezers or tick removal tool.

Carpooling is always encouraged.

All litter, cans, refuse, bottles, and trash sall be removed from the Conservation Lands by the user unless placed in an official trash receptacle.

If you want to bring your canine friend, dogs must be kept under owner's control at all times. It shall be the duty of each person who owns, possesses, or controls a dog to remove and dispose of any feces left by his or her dog on any Town Conservation Lands.
