Annual Meeting

Thank you Larry Dapsis for educating us on the topic of ticks and how to protect ourselves!  We were happy to see so many members at the SCT Annual Meeting and welcome our new members.

Watch videos that Larry, Barnstable County Entomologist, has created to educate us about ticks.  The "Tickolgy" series contains 10 videos.  The following link provides a summary of the topic and links to YouTube videos.

Osborne-Sherman Property

Fall colors are in full bloom, so it's the perfect opportunity to visit the Osborne-Sherman property on Gully Lane!

Many thanks to Joe, Bob, Debbie and Cliff for helping with the clean-up of this SCT property a few weeks back.  With the assistance of some power tools (thank goodness), they were able to open up the entrance to the property, making it much more inviting.
