    Objective
    This free white-tailed deer management workshop will feature
    in-depth discussion about the problems that result when the
    numbers of deer in a community exceed habitat carrying
    capacity; and discuss possible solutions that might be
    employed. Registrants will receive research-based
    information via presentations and handouts that should
    assist them in sorting through the pool of media propaganda
    on deer management technique. The intended audience are
    teachers, wildlife professionals, land managers, and
    homeowners who take pride in supporting responsible wildlife
    stewardship. Continuing Education credits for both teachers
    and wildlife professionals are available.

    Topics

    * Quality Deer Management Association’s Richard Vitek
    will offer both a historical perspective and current
    strategies that other communities have implemented.


    * NCWRC District 3 Biologist Joe Folta will discuss how
    the NC Wildlife Resources Commission evaluates impact of the
    growing deer herds in North Carolina and how NCWRC is
    addressing these issues; and


    * Bass Lake Park Naturalist Sabrina Thompson will offer
    practical wildlife habitat management solutions, which are
    intended to discourage habitat destruction that results from
    white-tailed deer feeding.

    This workshop will include materials from the Living with
    White-tailed Deer program, which is well correlated to the
    National Science Education Standards. The program is a
    winner of the international “The Wildlife Society’s
    Conservation Education Award” and of the national “Outdoor
    Writers Association of America’s Golden Eco Award”, which is
    given to the top conservation-education production. Further,
    the National Science Teacher’s Association has recommended
    the Living with White-tailed Deer program.
    Who Should Attend?

    knowledge of forestry professionals, wildlife/environmental
    specialists, land managers, and homeowners.
