Learn How To Resolve Deer Problems In Your Backyard, Neighborhood At March 25 Seminar In Harrisburg

This free Seminar will educate the public about how to resolve deer problems in their backyards and neighborhoods while helping municipalities learn effective and sustainable ways to co-exist and mitigate conflicts with deer and other wildlife.
Speakers John Griffin, Director of Urban Wildlife Programs at The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and Laura Simon, an Urban Wildlife Consultant, will present participants with:
-- A model deer conflict management plan which provides municipal, community, and political leaders with a framework to build stakeholder engagement, identify root causes of conflict, and comprehensively address problems using a science-based and sustainable approach.
-- Strategies for protecting gardens and plants, reducing the incidence of Lyme disease and decreasing deer-vehicle collision risks.
“We get a lot of inquiries about human-deer conflict from people in Pennsylvania,” explained Stephanie Boyles Griffin, The Botstiber Institute for Wildlife Fertility Control Science and Policy Director.  “We want people to be able to co-exist with urban wildlife. We hope to help them better understand these conflicts and how to put together a sustainable plan for their communities.”
Subsequent seminars are planned for other areas in Pennsylvania later in the year. This series aims to educate the public about deer conflict mitigation in urban and suburban areas.  
The seminars will provide the knowledge, tools, and resources to encourage communities to solve management issues while co-existing with deer and other wildlife.
The Seminar will be held at the Dixon University Center, Administration Building, Conference Room B/C, 2986 North Second Street in Harrisburg from 5:30 to 8:00.
