Deer in Our Woods – Brattleboro

July 27, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

When are there too many deer in our woods?

Vermont Fish & Wildlife deer biologist Nick Fortin will talk about Vermont’s deer population and what happens when we have too many deer. Then we will walk through conserved woods where deer have caused serious damage to young trees and other plants. Participants will learn an easy method of monitoring deer impact. A similar event will be held in Georgia on July 20.

This event is co-sponsored by Vermont Fish & Wildlife and the Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation.

The first portion of this event will occur at the West Village Meetinghouse/All Souls Church in West Brattleboro.  The subsequent field portion will take place at a VLT-owned property a few miles away.
Land Restoration Event Series

This event is part of our Land Restoration Event Series. We hope you will join us on the land to discuss how to help native plants thrive, learn how hunters help our woods stay healthy, and join efforts that just might help ash trees remain in our woods. All events are free and open to the public. Registration is required.

For more information, contact Pieter van Loon by email or at (802) 246-1502.
