Our 3rd Annual Wild Things – Dragonfly Ball on Saturday evening was a rousing success! One hundred sixteen guests attended and, as you saw, the evening was filled with fellowship, fine food and drink, great music and dancing, and most of all … overwhelming support for PEEC’s mission!  Thanks to you, we achieved this year’s objective for the 21st Century Sustainability Campaign and have now reached the quarter million mark in campaign support since the campaign’s inception in 2013.  Thanks to the generosity of PEEC’s friends, we also raised more than $5,000 toward our 2016 campership assistance fund. Your financial support has made a real difference!  Thank you very much.

Pike County Lyme Disease Task Force

Pike County Tick Borne Diseases Task Force
538 Emery Road
Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania 18328

Telephone: (570) 503-6334

Pike County Tick Borne Diseases Task Force and PEEC have joined forces to help prevent the spread of Lyme and other tick borne diseases. Together, we will work to educate the public about the prevalence and dangers of tick borne diseases, how to protect yourself from becoming infected, and how to enjoy your time outside.

Tick-ID: Know Them. Prevent Them.

Ticks: What You Need to Know

It’s time to enjoy the great outdoors; just remember to Identify, Prevent, and Remove. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bite of an infected deer tick. Untreated Lyme can cause a number of health problems. It is our mission to help you stay safe and be informed by raising awareness of tick-borne diseases and encouraging local advocacy and precautions.

The Pike County Tick Borne Disease Task Force is focused on decreasing the number of tick borne accounts by building community awareness through education, support, and advocacy.
