An Urban Deer Management webinar will be presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service on Sept. 9.
White-tailed deer are becoming an increasingly problematic nuisance in urban areas where they can destroy landscape plants and gardens. The webinar will address ways to prevent access, deter damages and/or utilize plant species that are not preferred by deer.
The event is co-hosted by the AgriLife Extension offices in Dallas and Tarrant counties and will be from noon to 2 p.m. on the Zoom meeting platform.
There is no cost to attend, but participants need to preregister at https://tx.ag/UrbanDeer. The link to join online will be sent out a day prior to the event.
For additional information or questions, contact Jacklyn Jones-Doyle, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Tarrant County, at firstname.lastname@example.org,or Elizabeth Rudd, AgriLife Extension agent for Dallas County, at email@example.com.
