Each workshop will cover Canada Geese behavior, effective geese management techniques, case studies from other communities, federal and state regulations, and where to find additional resources. Speakers include:
David Feld, GeesePeace, Inc.
Bryan Swift, Game Bird Unit NYSDEC Bureau of Wildlife
Stacy Pecor Preusser, USDA Wildlife Services

This workshop is for property, school grounds, recreational facility and park managers, golf courses, college and corporate campuses, lake associations, homeowner associations, cemeteries, public health managers, and the interested public.

The workshops will provide valuable information that will prepare participants for action this upcoming spring.

The workshops are identical, so those interested need only register for one. The workshops are free but registration is required. See links above. Please register by March 16.

Because geese do not recognize property boundaries and so will nest on one property and cause a nuisance on another, it is important for neighboring properties to be aware of management techniques. We encourage you to invite your neighboring property owners to this event. Please forward this announcement.
