Ward Night

March 8


Lincoln Park Zoo’s Chicago Rat Project has been trapping rats on Ravenswood, Hermitage, Paulina from Granville to Ridge from August 2022- November 2022 based on reports of highest amount of rodent complaints. Because of the collaborative efforts over 150 rats have been caught and tissues for disease analysis are being sent out. The next step is to see if removing rat attractants such as accessible garbage in these alleys will decrease rat populations. This is where YOU come in!
We would like to meet with YOU about how, together, we can safe guard communities and determine best practices for rodent mitigation. The Rat Project will share learnings from their survey about encounters with rats and educational materials on how residents can protect themselves, their homes, and their community from potential disease risks.

PLEASE NOTE: No Ward Night tonight 3/1/2023
