Manassas National Battlefield Park offers a wide variety of learning opportunities for students. Being prepared for the field conditions is an important component of an educational field trip. Tick bites are one of the biggest threats to a student's safety while in the battlefield. Some ticks carry blood born pathogens that can cause Lyme Disease or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Please read the materials below and ensure that all students and their parents are aware of the risks associated with tick bites and the preventative measures they can take before heading into the field.
