Event Details

The Program: Do you look out the window and find your roses beheaded? Are your carefully cultivated fruits and vegetables partially eaten? Or, have your plants disappeared in entirety? It’s likely deer, raccoons, gophers, or rats are appreciating your garden.  Come and learn techniques to help home gardeners cope with these pests.
