Awarded Salida Soup Microgrant (Colorado Tick-Borne Disease Awareness Association

Just one bite can change a life! Colorado is home to 25 species of ticks, some capable of transmitting diseases that can cause illness in people, pets and wildlife. Traveling to regions where tick prevalence and disease may be even greater exposes Colorado travelers to additional risks that they may not be aware of. Regardless of where or how exposure to ticks may occur, Coloradans need access to accurate information regarding risk, prevention, potential disease, testing and treatment within Colorado and throughout the US. Though not every tick may carry or be able to transmit disease every tick bite should be taken seriously.
