CLOSURE OF ONEIDA LAKE starting Friday, February 14, 2020.

By order of the Oneida Conservation Department:

It has been determined that due to ongoing construction activities, lake levels will be fluctuating in the coming weeks. This can create unsafe ice conditions.

Therefore, the Oneida Lake area will be closed to the public beginning Friday, February 14, 2020 and scheduled to re-open on May 1, 2020.

Oneida Police Department officers and Oneida wardens will be patrolling the area on a regular basis and can issue citations for anyone in the restricted area during the closure period.

If you have any questions regarding the Lake closure, please feel free to call the Conservation Office at 920.869.1450.

It's National Burn Awareness Week! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 300 children aged 19 and under are treated in emergency rooms each day for burn-related injuries, and of those, two children die from being burned. Use the back burners of the stove to prevent children from reaching up and touching hot pots and pans. Check out the attached article and learn more about how to prevent different types of burn injury in your home.

The Coronavirus has infected at least 11 people in the United States to date according to the Center for Disease Control. No U.S. cases have proven fatal. The CDC cites that if you have not traveled to China or have had contact with persons suspected or known to have contracted Coronavirus, your chances of being infected with this disease is very low at this time. There is no vaccination currently available. Please see the attached flyer for more information regarding this novel virus.

There have been an estimated 19 million influenza illnesses to date in the United States, with an approximate 10,000 flu related deaths. The best way to prevent seasonal influenza is to get vaccinated. It is recommended that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season, especially people at high risk. While it is recommended to get vaccinated prior to the onset of the flu season (October), getting vaccinated later can still be beneficial. Stay home when you are sick, keep your children home when they are sick, and be diligent about washing your hands often.

**Attention Curbside Collection Customers***

Please remember that your carts are due out on the roadside by 6 a.m. on the day of collection. If the trucks go by and your carts are not out, your carts will not be emptied again until your next scheduled collection date. Please have your carts out by 6 a.m. or place them out the night before collection to ensure collection. Also a reminder to place carts in your driveway at the edge of the shoulder or on the grass at the edge of the shoulder, do not place carts in the roadway or on the shoulder as this impedes our municipal plow trucks. Carts must be at least 4 feet from each other and from any other obstructions (mailbox, etc.). Thank you for your cooperation!

It is estimated that 48 million people get ill, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 people die each year in the United States due to foodborne illnesses. With many families cooking large meals for the upcoming holiday, we will be posting safe food handling practices each day this week.

PREPPING YOUR MEAL

1. It is critical to wash your hands frequently while prepping food, ESPECIALLY after you handle any raw meats or uncooked foods.

2. Clean and sanitize utensils, cutting boards, and counter tops often- always after preparing raw animals products.

3. Wash produce thoroughly, especially if they will not be cooked.

4. NEVER rinse or wash raw meat or poultry. Cooking the product serves as the kill step to eliminate bacteria to safer levels. You can spread harmful bacteria onto other surfaces, utensils, or food by washing or rinsing!

COOKING TEMPERATURE OF TURKEY AND STUFFING

Did you know you cannot tell if your bird is done simply by the color? Your bird is not safely cooked until it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degreed F. This goes for any stuffing inside the bird as well!

Use a food thermometer to check the temperature in 3 different places:

1. Thickest part of the breast
2. Inside the wing
3. Inside the thigh

All three places, plus the stuffing, should be at least 165 degrees before it can be considered safely cooked. Make sure to wash and sanitize your thermometer before and after taking temps to prevent cross contamination to other food or surfaces!

SAFE THAWING OF POULTRY

While frozen, a turkey is considered safe indefinitely. As soon as it begins to thaw, pathogens can start to grow again. It is important to safely thaw your bird to prevent the overgrowth of pathogens to a dangerous level. Below are acceptable safe ways to thaw a turkey:

1. Place the bird in your refrigerator. It takes approximately 24 hours for every 4-5 pounds of bird to thaw completely. This means a 20 pound bird could take 4-5 days to thaw! Make sure to place the bird in the lowest part of the fridge in case it drips.

2. Submerge the turkey in cold running water. Change the water frequently to make sure that it stays cool. NEVER USE HOT WATER. Hot water can raise the internal temperature of the bird and promote bacteria growth.

3. If you can find a microwave big enough to fit your bird, go for it! You can safety use a microwave to thaw frozen meat and poultry as long as you cook it immediately after.

4. Cook it right away! Did you know that it is completely safe to cook frozen meat and poultry? Expect to wait longer for it to cook completely, however.

ATTENTION HUNTERS!
Remember to look for the carcass disposal dumpster at the Conservation Field Office to help prevent the spread of CWD this hunting season.

Attention sportsmen! Check out the new dumpster that is now available for the 2019 harvest season! This dumpster will serve as a secure disposal for deer carcasses to help prevent the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), a fatal disease in deer and other hooved animals. CWD-infected carcasses can contaminate soil and water and further spread the disease. For more information about CWD or the new disposal program, please contact Shad Webster at 869-1450 ext. 6506

BACKYARD CHICKENS AND SALMONELLA

What is salmonella?
• Salmonella is a bacteria that can make people ill and usually results in diarrhea, vomiting, fever and abdominal cramps for as long as a week.

How does Salmonella spread to humans from chickens?
• Salmonella infection occurs when bacteria enter the mouth.
• It is common to think that salmonella infection only results from eating undercooked eggs or poultry, but live chickens can carry salmonella and the bacteria is easily spread to other surfaces. Humans can become infected with salmonella by touching chickens (feathers, beak, and feet), or anything in their environment (bird droppings, cages, coops, feed or water dishes, hay, plants, and soil).
• Children age 5 or younger with immature immune systems, adults age 65 or older and sick people with weaker immune systems are more susceptible to severe salmonella infection.

Tips for preventing Salmonella infection
• ALWAYS wash your hands with soap and hot water after touching chickens or anything in their living area (including eggs).
• DO NOT touch your mouth after snuggling chickens and DO NOT kiss chickens.
• Children age 5 or younger, adults age 65 or older and sick people should not handle chickens.
• DO NOT let chickens into your house, especially not in food contact areas.
• Use a separate pair of shoes designated for outside use only when caring for chickens
• DO NOT eat or drink in or around the chicken’s living area.
• Clean chicken feed or water containers outside only and regularly clean coop to reduce feces and dirt on eggs.
• Clean dirty eggs with sandpaper, a brush or a dry cloth. DO NOT wash eggs with COLD water because this can flush salmonella bacteria off the shell into the egg.

Please contact Vanessa Miller or Brittany Nicholas at 896-1600 with any questions.

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was recently detected on the Oneida Reservation. The EAB beetles were discovered on purple traps that were placed on ash trees throughout the reservation. These traps were designed to attract adult beetles after they emerge from under the bark of an infested ash tree.

The EAB is an exotic invasive insect that was first identified in Michigan in 2002 and has now spread to 36 states in the U.S. and 5 Canadian Provinces. The EAB attacks and kills all species of ash found in North America. An ash tree native to our region (such as green ash, white ash and black ash) has little to no resistance to EAB and can be killed within 3-4 years after infestation. Oneida is working on a response plan including seed saving.

For more information on EAB please visit http://www.emeraldashborer.info/index.php

Will there be a clean sweep this year?
Yaw^ko Tony and Amy for coming out to identify my plants! Tony says it is sweet Sicily, the sap is a bit toxic, but should be ok as long as we don't get it on our skin. Very helpful and has set my mind at ease!
What kind of plant is this? A cow parsnip?
