Science on TAP! Mule Deer in Wenatchee Valley
It's back, Science on TAP!
Come out to Wenatchee's Badger Mountain Brewing on Thursday, September 26th from 6-7pm and hear Von Pope, Senior Wildlife Biologist for Chelan County PUD, talk about mule deer winter habitat in the Wenatchee Foothills.
Learn about mule deer population monitoring in the Wenatchee Valley, and find answers to questions like, How many deer are in this area and Why are the Sage Hills and other recreation areas closed during the winter? “Initial effort has gone a long way to protect mule deer wintering range and herds have benefitted by having a piece of property not being used for recreational purposes during the winter. Winter closures and monitoring are now in place; 15 years ago, that data just wasn’t around,” explains Pope.
After the presentation, there will be a raffle of WRI and Badger Mountain Brewery goods! All proceeds help keep WRI programming continue and grow.
