Event Description

There are significant impacts of deer and invasive plant species on forests and woodlands, and these deer and plant impacts can interact.  Join Dr. Bernd Blossey of the Cornell University Department of Natural Resources for this webinar.  Bernd will introduce new metrics on how to assess deer damage and then discuss implementation of suburban deer management programs in the Ithaca area. These new approaches have resulted in substantial deer reductions in several towns and may function as a blueprint for other communities struggling to find their own process to deal with overabundant deer herds. Presented march 16, 2016 by Dr. Bernd Blossey Cornell University Department of Natural Resources.
