White-tailed deerJoin us to learn more about White-tailed deer, their role in our local ecosystem, and the challenges we face with increased numbers of deer in our communities.

Charles Smith, ecologist and board member of the VA Native Plant Society, and Jordan Green, District Biologist with the VA Dept. of Wildlife Resources will share their professional insights into the history and current status of White-tailed deer, how deer can affect the landscape.

We'll consider how deer impact our lives and share information on management options that can restore balance that creates a healthier environment for deer and humans alike. Bring your questions!
