KMCA is planning a Spring Make Your Own Tick Tube Session on April 16, 2018 from 8-9pm at Kemp Mill Elementary School. This will be open to both members and non-members. Tick tubes are the most effective way to reduce the number of ticks on your property making it safer for outdoor activity. Ticks can transit Lyme disease. Tick tubes are cotton balls soaked in Permethrin stuffed inside a toilet paper roll. Mice take the soft cotton balls back to their nests while the Permethrin kills the ticks but does not harm the mice. Buying pre-made tick tubes costs $80 but the KMCA is buying the materials and offering this event (led by an instructor) at a subsidized rate of $11. You will leave with 24 tick tubes and instructions on how to make more yourself.
Start saving your toilet paper and paper towel rolls to help bring down the cost of the event.
For this event we are requiring reservations and pre-payment so we can buy the correct amount of materials. Please use the form below. Payment is by Paypal, and you will be redirected to Paypal after entering your information.

Sorry, this event is over. Watch for the next session in Spring 2019.
The KMCA Transportation Committee is pleased to announce that we will have a special meeting on Monday, March 5th from 7-8 PM at the Kemp Mill Elementary School for a presentation and discussion with the Montgomery County Planning Department on the proposed County Bicycle Master Plan. David Anspacher, who is the Supervisor for the Functional Planning and Policy Division within the Montgomery County Planning Department, will be joining us for this hour-long meeting. David will spend the first 10-15 minutes presenting on what the Bicycle Master Plan is and then spend the rest of the session taking questions and comments from members of our community. Items up for discussion could include:
- Internal neighborhood connections for bikes and pedestrians
- Possible bicycle facilities along Arcola Ave and Kemp Mill Road
- Bicycle network for commuting from Kemp Mill to other destinations
- Bicycle parking
- Stations for renting bicycles within Kemp Mill
- Bicycle traffic along Lamberton
- Surrounding trail system
- Safety concerns regarding cyclists
- Anything else that might interest you
This meeting is open to the whole community. Please invite all your neighbors that may have an interest in this meeting to join us. The more participation and input we get at this meeting, the more we can improve Kemp Mill to be a more friendly environment for bicycles and pedestrians.
