This program will cover the basics of managing private lands for wildlife, including evaluating existing habitats, setting attainable goals, and implementing wildlife habitat improvement projects.
Topics to be covered include deer management, invasive species control, effective tree planting, and resources for landowners trying to improve the value of their land for wildlife. The habitat management techniques to be discussed during this program can be implemented on properties of all sizes, making this program appropriate for any landowner.
