Thank you for participating in the tick survey. You have helped us improve Greenbelt Park by sharing your experience with ticks and tick-borne illness (e.g. Lyme disease) that you experienced after your visit.

The survey was approved by the Maryland Department of Health and
Mental Hygiene Review Board and the National Park Service Research Permit
System.

This effort by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, in partnership with Greenbelt Park, the National Park Service, and the Prince George's County Health Department, aims to improve the visitor experience at Greenbelt Park.
