High levels of white-tailed deer populations have detrimental effects on native ecosystems. The sound management and harvesting of these animals has been shown to be the best way to reduce large herd numbers. Observe and experience how our natural lands manager, Nate Shampine, utilizes the different cuts of meat. Enjoy three courses of venison dishes with the evening’s private chef. Cash bar available. Seating is purposefully limited to 32 guests to create a close-knit, welcoming environment for all guests.
This program takes place in-person at Mt. Cuba Center on Friday, September 15, 2023 (Rain Date: Friday, September 22).
