#var:page_name# cover

White-tailed deer can have a significant impact on the vegetation in local woodlands. Help the University of Minnesota Extension pilot an innovative new citizen science project to monitor how deer impact Minnesota's forests.

Join us for a half day workshop (qualifies as Advanced Training/continuing education hours). The AVID program will instruct and train volunteers on the impact deer have on woodlands. Workshop registration fee is $35, and includes take-home materials and supplies.

This program is perfect for woodland owners, naturalists, and others with a basic knowledge of trees and plant identification. Participants will learn to establish monitoring plots in wooded areas and monitor the health of these woods through recording annual measurements.

This session is being offered as a pre-conference workshop at the annual Gathering Partners of Natural Resources conference. You may register for just the workshop, or the entire conference.
