It's That Time of Year!
Tick Free New Hampshire is a non-profit program started to raise awareness about the risk of tick encounters. Tick Free NH’s 2018 goals include: educating parents and child care workers on how to help children avoid and check for ticks and assisting health care providers in patient education around preventing tick bites.

Tick Free NH is an initiative supported by a New Hampshire funder, local businesses, and a group of New Hampshire public health, environmental health, and childcare professionals who share thier mission of providing the most up to date information to New Hampshire residents about how to prevent tick encounters and protect themselves from tick bites.

Last year, Tick Free NH connected with over 800 schools and child care centers – teachers and professionals used the Tick Detective Workbooks for Kids as well as the activity pages. Tick Free NH offers no-cost and low-cost resources for order or download. They encourage you to visit their website and review the prevention information. You can order hard copies of our materials through the web site and online order form.

Did you know your school or child care center can help protect children from tick bites and have a policy for removal of ticks? To establish a school or childcare policy for tick removal visit: .
