Record rainfall this spring and recent flooding has led to mosquito breeding sites across our Council area, increasing the risk for mosquito-borne disease.
In light of the recent concerns, we are continuing to take precautions to protect visitors, including addressing standing water on our properties and treating our camp grounds.
We are also encouraging visitors to take extra precautions.
Here’s how you can protect yourself from mosquito bites when visiting our camps:
- Wear insect repellant. According to the CDC, when used as directed insect repellant is the best way to protect yourself from mosquito bites.
- Cover up. When weather permits, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants.
All information included follow guidelines provided by the CDC. To learn more or for additional resources, visit the CDC website.
