Deer Impacts on Vegetation

  • Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join us for this exciting training to learn about how deer might be impacting your native plants, in both forests and gardens. Deer populations can reduce native plant regeneration and presence while creating opportunities for invasive plants to gain ground and thrive. Tracey Testo, Natural Resource Program Coordinator, will bring us to the forest to discuss how to identify these impacts. Donna Peterson, Community Horticulture Program Coordinator will take us to the gardens to talk about deer impacts on native plantings. During this training, participants will also learn about a monitoring activity called AVID- Assessing Vegetation Impacts from Deer. You can become a citizen science and learn how to use native trees and wildflowers to monitor your land.

Presenter: Tracey Testo, Natural Resource Program Coordinator and Donna Peterson, Community Horticulture Program Coordinator
