About: White-tailed deer are a valuable natural resource enjoyed by many across Texas. However, when deer numbers escalate and they become overabundant, deer can threaten wildlife and plant diversity and cause emotionally charged conflict within communities. There are very real economic, cultural, health, and ecological concerns. Texas communities regularly confront these issues. A workshop will be hosted on May 29th in San Marcos that allow attendees to learn from the experiences of others and hear from nationally recognized experts currently working with overabundant deer issues. Residents and Community leaders will learn practical solutions to address wildlife conflict in an engaging, interactive setting. The workshop is hosted by Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Texas Wildlife Association, and Texas State University.
