“We have many tips to share to keep your yard from becoming a critter snack,” states Rochester Hills Naturalist, Lance DeVoe. “Guests will walk away with the latest deer management information so they can create their own multi-facet approach at home.”

The event is a partnership between the Deer Management Advisory Committee (DMAC), the Parks and Natural Resources Department, and Bordine’s of Rochester Hills.
