Assessing Vegetation for Impacts from Deer


POSTPONED - Assessing Vegetation for Impacts from Deer (AVID)

  • Saturday, April 18, 2020, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

AVID is a method for volunteers, foresters, landowners and others to Assess the Vegetation for Impacts from Deer. Wildflowers and/or tree seedlings are selected and measured each year for several years to evaluate the impact of deer browsing. Field data collected across New York State will be used to track tree, shrub and wildflower response to deer browsing over time. Knowledge of how deer impacts change through time will help guide deer management decisions at local and state levels.

This workshop begins with an introduction indoors, followed by a field- / woods-walk nearby.

9:00 a.m. to noon, CCE Extension Center:

Tracey Testo, Natural Resource Educator, CCE Agroforestry Center.

Registration is required by April 16.
