Burleigh County Extension
With the warm up we are starting to see all sorts of creepy crawlies come out. One that often has people feeling the heebie jeebies is ticks. These eight legged arthropods feed on the blood of animals and humans and are responsible for transmitting many different diseases such as Lyme Disease.
Spring time often means spring cleaning. One of the places most people can always get rid of a few things is our shoe closet. Why not thin out your shoes and help send Burleigh County 4-H youth to camp at the same time?
Don’t forget to protect and nourish your skin! May marks skin cancer awareness month. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is called melanoma and it is 100% preventable.
Reminder that Achievement Day forms are due Monday, May 16. Remember we will honor the anything in the drop box or postmarked May 16.
Every spring it happens—conflicts between robins and windows. Without warning, a determined robin flies into your window, clunking it repeatedly. At first it may seem a bit humorous, but then one begins to seriously wonder if the bird is okay.
In addition to the great tips below, you may find that "Tips for Saving Energy and Money for Renters" publication useful as you settle into a place for the summer. A fellow NDSU Extension Agent wrote a publication as quoted below that printed in the Sargent County Teller in May 2015. It was so informative we wanted to ensure Burleigh County residents have the opportunity to learn from her experience as her son finds his own place to live this summer.
April 10-16 is national volunteer week. National volunteer week was started in 1974 as a week-long celebration to inspire, recognize and encourage people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.
Join us on April 23rd at the 4-H Building from 9:00AM-12:00PM for a morning full of excitement surrounding our pets at home!!
You know what you are going to wear, but what about taking care of your body as you prepare? TALK TO YOUR TEENS.
