Deer populations in Central Texas are a growing problem as suburban neighborhoods sprawl into our natural areas. As deer grow accustomed to living around people, they do more damage to gardens and landscaping. In this seminar you will learn about deer behavior and how to manage them in your environment. Master Gardener Bob Beyer will equip you with information about non-preferred plants, chemical repellants, scare techniques and devices to help you devise a strategy for your own property.
This seminar is free and open to the public. It is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County, (512)854-9600. www.tcmastergardeners.org
