The Impact and Management of White-tailed Deer in our Neighborhoods

Event Date: 
Thursday, January 25, 2018,
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

By Dr. Bernd Blossey
Associate Professor
Department of Natural Resources, Cornell University

Thursday, January 25, 2018   7:00-8:30 pm,
Free and open to the public.

Dr. Blossey will share evidence of deer impacts from his work on multiple ecological stressors.

He will also review how Cornell University and surrounding communities have dealt with deer management and showcase methods that are beginning to improve living conditions for other species.

Bernd Blossey is intimately involved in different approaches to deer management at Cornell and in the surrounding municipalities.  He has developed a network of deer exclosures to study impact of deer on many species and processes, and is developing bioindicators to assess effects of different stressors, including deer.  The ultimate aim of this work is to increase the conservation values of all lands through development of best management practices.

Co-sponsored by the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability and the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum.
