Join Irvine Nature Center for four brief workshops focusing on controlling the local whitetail deer population. Discover tools and learn methods, including nonlethal techniques like deer-resistant plants, to help curb the whitetail's rising population and impact on our local ecosystem. Other topics of discussion include historical perspectives on the species, fencing and repellents, alternatives to hunting, and Lyme disease. Great for gardeners and naturalists!
