Impact of White‐Tailed Deer on Local Parks: Experts to Discuss

    Are deer really doing harm to local parks? What is that harm, how is it measured, and what are the consequences? Does removing deer restore plant and other animal species? Experts will discuss.

  • Dr. Jacqueline Courteau, a professional biologist who both the City and the County have hired to assess the condition of parks, will speak about her research over the last two years in Washtenaw County and Ann Arbor’s parks.
    “How Deer Affect Plants, Pollinators, and Ecological Processes: Studies in Southeast Michigan”
  • Paul Muelle, recently retired as Manager of Natural Resources for the Huron-Clinton Metroparks, will describe the conditions that led the HCMA to decide to cull white tailed deer from some of its properties; how the culls were done; and the results and on-going management program.

Please note parking and building access restrictions:
An access ramp is being constructed between the main entrance and the classroom wing.
During this construction (until March 17) you will need to park in the front parking lot, with overflow in the large lot.
Please enter the building through the Main Lobby.
Do not try to enter through the west lobby door.
The hallway doesn’t connect to the Main Lobby at this time.
Visitors might want to bring a small flashlight, since there isn’t any lighting on the sidewalk in front of the building which the MBG regrets.
