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. Join us for an evening to observe and experience how our Natural Lands Manager utilizes the different cuts of meat and prepares venison dishes. Please bring your favorite beverage to drinkwhile sampling various dishes and venison products. There will also be an opportunity to take samples home.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Friday, September 17 (Rain Date: Friday, September 24)
