The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting a Deer Manager 101 course for private landowners within five counties in northwest Florida.

The course, offered by the FWC’s Landowner Assistance Program, will be held on Thursday, Aug. 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Wakulla Environmental Institute, 170 Preservation Way, Crawfordville. Registration begins at 8 a.m.

Private landowners from Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla counties are invited to learn about featured topics such as mapping your property, deer biology, deer habitat management and aging deer. Participants also will have an opportunity to meet local FWC law enforcement officers from these counties to learn about the services that the officers provide.

This course is the second of three courses offered in northwest Florida. The final course, which will be held for the western counties in northwest Florida, will be announced later.

Lunch will be provided, but you must pre-register by Aug. 24. To pre-register, contact Kay Haskins at the Northwest Regional Office at 850-265-3676.
