Mosquitoes Be Gone!
Learn About Dunks THIS SUNDAY at 1pm  

Excited to pull out that grill but dreading the bug bites? Find out how to control mosquitoes in your backyard using environmentally-friendly "dunks". These palm-sized "donuts" use naturally-occurring bacterium to kill larval mosquitoes without causing harm to humans, other wildlife, and the environment. Come to this program to find out how to get them, where they can be used, and how to use them effectively.

This FREE program will be held Sunday, April 10, from 1pm to 2pm, and will be hosted by Hudson Crossing Board Member and environmental specialist George Hodgson. For more information about this program, please call 859-1462 or email info@hudsoncrossingpark.org.
