Friends Of Rothrock State Forest Hold Deer, Forest Health & Hunting Program Nov. 21 In Centre County

Join the Friends of Rothrock State Forest for an educational and social event November 21 on Deer, Forest Health and Hunting at the Boalsburg Fire Hall, 113 E Pine Street in Centre County from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The program will feature a host of experts and resource professionals, including--

-- Dr. Duane Diefenbach of Penn State and Helen Schlemmer of the Game Commission will present findings from The Deer-Forest Study taking place in Rothrock State Forest. The Deer-Forest Study tracks white-tailed deer using GPS technology to investigate how deer browsing and soil conditions interact to affect the understory vegetation in our forests.

-- Game Commission biologist Mark Ternent and Josh Thompson of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry will discuss the Deer Management Assistance Program in Rothrock State Forest and the important role hunters and hunting play in the overall management of deer in Penns Woods.

-- Mike Steingraber of the Game Commission and Mark Potter from the Rothrock State Forest District will provide overviews of their respective conservation agency’s mission and responsibilities and how the agencies collaborate together to manage and conserve the native fauna in the Rothrock State Forest.

The evening will include a Q & A with all presenters and some light refreshments and social time with the presenters and other attendees.
