Forest regrowth requires an abundance of healthy saplings from desirable, native trees to replace the older generations of trees. This regeneration is often stunted by the overabundance of white-tailed deer who browse on these trees often so much that it can cause shifts in forest composition. Join us at this online workshop to learn from quantitative ecologist, Kate Miller about the research she has conducted on regeneration debt caused by deer browse.
This program is part of our Working Woodlands workshops series. This series is designed to connect nature enthusiasts and land-owners with natural resource professionals, to provide them with the skills and knowledge to promote land stewardship. These workshops are held both virtually and in-person throughout the year. Explore a wide range of topics, including but not limited to wildlife tracking, tree identification, creating wildlife habitat, invasive plant management, sustainable forestry, and much more. After attending a workshop, you can expect to come away with knowledge about land stewardship and the skills to take it home and practice in your own backyard. Workshops are co-sponsored by Vermont Woodlands Association, Vermont Coverts: Woodlands for Wildlife, and Billings Farm and Museum.
