Wednesday July 18th the Mount Washington Observatory will be offering its second program for Science in the Mountains: A Passport to Science. This fun and exciting lecture series if free to the public and starts at 7pm Wednesdays through August 15th at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway. This past week kicked off the program with a presentation on Observing Mount Washington’s Weather. All the programs cover a wide variety of topics that pertain to the White Mountain region.

This week the presentation will be on Ticks and Lyme Disease by Alan Stearne, Environmental Biologist. Join him for a comprehensive overview of ticks and Lyme disease. The presentation will cover all the tick species that transmit the Lyme disease bacterium, share important facts and myths about the disease, and demonstrate the safe and proper way to remove a tick. Actual specimens will be available for viewing, and a question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Below is a list of the other presentation this summer.
