My favorite place at Mount Union is the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center. Many students do not realize that Mount has its own nature preserve, but it does!

I’ve Got a Tick! – Don’t Panic

Cali Granger, Resident Entomologist of the Nature Center and UMU Senior, taught participants important information about ticks and how to identify them. Using microscopes, participants then used their new knowledge to identify a live tick and its body parts. Cali Granger showed how to “flag” for ticks to see if they are present at the Nature Center (which they are not at this time!) Participants then tried their hand at “flagging” for ticks.
