The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is hosting a timely and important presentation on October 11 at 7:00 p.m. as part of its year-long Scholars Series.  Dr. Don Waller, professor of Botany and Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is addressing, "The Environmental Impact of White-tailed Deer and Managing an Overabundant Herbivore," in Perry Hall on the UWFox campus in Menasha.

According to Waller, deer are an icon of wild nature, a popular game animal, and now a "keystone" herbivore with impacts on many forest species. He will summarize recent research on how deer affect forest ecosystems and the dilemmas these impacts raise for managing deer.  

The UWFox Scholars Series is free and open to the public with unreserved seating. Guests are encouraged to arrive early in order to get a seat for this very important presentation. For more information about Waller's session, call the UWFox campus at 832-2600.
