(Courtesy Photo) Group helps clean park's road THEODORE ROOSEVELT NATIONAL PARK - The Badlands Conservation Alliance met at the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park to celebrate Earth Day, on April 22. A group of nearly 20 BCA mem- bers and friends began their day with litter clean-up along the busiest section of the park loop road. The National Park Service provided transportation and supplies for the event, as well as staff support. At noon everyone gathered for a pic- nic. After lunch, volunteers were able to hike, bird watch, visit together, and enjoy the park. Later in the afternoon, the group watched Theodore Roosevelt National Park's premiere of their new film "Refuge of The American Spirit." It is hoped that an event like this can become an Earth Day tradition. Founded in 1999, Badlands Conservation Alliance is a voice for wild North Dakota places. The group tries to educate its" members and the public on current public lands issues in western North Dakota. New members are wel- come.

State urges caution during tick season BISMARCK The North Dakota Department of Health encourages residents to take meas- ures to avoid tick bites and the potential for serious tick-borne dis- eases while enjoying outdoor activ- ities this summer "Tick-borne diseases such as tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease can be pre- vented by taking some basic pre- cautions to avoid tick bites," said Alicia Lepp, epidemiologist with the Department of Health's Division of Disease Control. "Areas that are heavily wooded or have tall grass or brush are more likely to be infested with ticks, especially between April and September. with the highest risk of disease transmission occun'ing dur- ing the warmer months." The Department of Health offers the following tips to help reduce the chance of ticks making contact with your skin: Wear light-colored clothing to make the ticks easier to see. Wear long pants, and tuck the legs into your socks or boots Keep your shirt tucked in. Apply insect repellent that contains DEET to your clothes and exposed skin. Always follow label directions (Repellents that contain permethrin should be used only on clothing.) "One of the best ways to prevent tick bites is to avoid habitats where ticks can be found," Lepp said. "However, if these tick-infested areas cannot be avoided, it's impor- tant to remove and wash all cloth- ing as soon as possible and check carefully for ticks. Use tweezers to remove any ticks that have attached to your body" According to Lepp, the best way to remove a tick is to use tweezers to grasp it as closely to the skin as possible and gently pull upward with a steady, even pressure until it is free. Avoid crushing the tick dur- ing removal. Make sure to wash your hands and the site of tick attachment with soap and water after removal. In the last five years, six cases of tularemia, four cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever and 97 cases of Lyme disease were report- ed in North Dakota. Human Lyme disease cases have been increasing since 2005 with an average of five to 15 cases reported each year; however, in the past two years there have been a total of 59 cases report- ed. The most common tick in North Dakota is the dog tick. which is associated with the transmission of Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tularemia. The deer tick, which can carry Lyme disease, has been iden- tified in areas in the northeastern region of North Dakota through surveillance activities by the North Dakota Department of Health, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota in the spring and summer of 2010. Finding the deer tick in the state is a significant dis- covery because there could be areas in the state at risk for Lyme disease transmission. Symptoms of tularemia usually begin with a painless ulcer at the site of the tick bite and may include swollen glands. If the bacteria enter the bloodstream, more severe infec- tions, including pneumonia, can occur. Rocky Mountain spotted fever is characterized by a sudden onset of fever, a general feeling of illness, deep muscle pain, severe headaches, chills and irritated eyes.

Symptoms of Lyme disease occur three to 32 days after infec- tion. The first symptom is often a red rash near the tick bite, which develops in about 60 percent of patients. Other early symptoms include fatigue, fever, headache, stiff neck, sore muscles, swollen glands and painful joints. Without treatment, these symptoms may last several weeks or more. Arthritis. neurological or cardiac problems may develop weeks to months after the initial infection if the initial infection is not treated with antibi- otics. People who have symptoms that may be associated with a tick-relat- ed illness should seek medical care.
