A Pine Bush tick museum?

We hear that there is a new Visitor's Center of some sort at Albany's Pine Bush Preserve.

That has us wondering whether or not it includes a deer tick display, considering that seems to be the dominant creature in this particular habitat.

Free Advice: if you ever dare to venture into T he Bush for a leisurely hike, do a thorough once-over inspection and the kids after, looking for these nasty things dug into your skin, sucking blood out of you and pumping disease into you.

Personally, I've taken three hikes over there. Twice, I've found ticks on myself; the other time my companion did the same.

Tread carefully.
