Educaional Program-Gardening with WildlifeDo the deer munch your hostas? Do chipmunks sabotage your landscaping? Rabbits, raccoons, moles, ground hogs and squirrels, just to name a few can all make gardening perilous. But there are ways to successfully coexist with the creatures in our backyards and farms. Jim Pease, Associate Professor Emeritus ISU, will talk about some principles of gardening with wildlife in mind. He says you must recognize the invaders, identify the damage they are doing, learn about the animal, and change the circumstances of the habitat.  These changes might include exclusion, scare tactics, repellents, or removal. Come get the details from a man with four decades of experience. Bring your questions.
