With IDA’s Help, Deer Contraception Project
Is Beginning In Hastings-on-Hudson!
And you can help! Orientation meeting Thursday, May 9
Meet Hasting-on-Hudson’s Mayor Peter Swiderski on Thursday, May 9 and learn about an exciting deer contraception project, including volunteer opportunities! IDA strongly endorses contraception as a tool to prevent the killing of deer.
If you live within a 25-mile radius of Hastings-on-Hudson and are interested in helping or just learning more, please attend this meeting on Thursday, May 9, 2013 from 6 – 7 p.m. at the Municipal Building, 7 Maple Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, upstairs in the courtroom.
This project needs people to help gather and interpret metrics on deer population, set up and monitor enclosures in the woods to document how a fenced-off patch of woods restores itself, and then help in the January, 2014 contraception darting by standing guard at entry points or helping the team in a variety of other ways.

When: Thursday, May 9, 2013, 6 – 7 p.m.
