Experts to Offer Advice on Urban Deer Overpopulation

SAN MARCOS, Texas — In many Texas communities, too much of a good thing can be a problem. White-tailed deer are a prime example and helping local leaders and their constituents find solutions to wildlife overpopulation issues is the impetus for an upcoming workshop here May 18, 2006.

Leading authorities from across the country will be sharing advice on issues that arise when deer populations in urban areas escalate. Among the topics to be discussed during the day-long event include the impacts of overabundant deer populations to habitat, safety, economics and health.

Presenters will share knowledge and experience on what tactics have worked and do not work to correct deer overpopulation problems, ways to build consensus within the community on management plans and what tools are available to tackle the problem.

The event is a joint effort by The Nature Conservancy, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Wildlife Association, the Lower Colorado River Authority and Texas State University.

Registration information is available online or by contacting Helen Holdsworth at (210) 826-2904, ext. 120. Cost is $50 and includes all refreshments and lunch.
