Many people love living around wildlife, but people and critters can clash. Sometimes wildlife can be a nuisance or damage property. However, there are ways to reduce these problems.
The Missouri Department of Conservation [MDC] is presenting a free program designed to offer homeowners practical ways for managing issues with nuisance wildlife.
The program “Co-existing with our ‘Pesky Wildlife'” will be held Friday, May 24 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Rockwoods Reservation in Wildwood. The program will look at different types of wildlife that can create common issues around homes and gardens. It will offer practical solutions on how to coexist with local animals and wildlife. For those used to finding raccoons rummaging in the garbage or rabbits rampant in home gardens, the program will also provide advice and ideas on how to keep wildlife out of personal places.
Co-existing with our ‘Pesky’ Wildlife” is a free program for adults, but advanced online registration is required at http://bit.ly/2LKlRwn.
Rockwoods Reservation is located off Highway 109 in Wildwood, at 2751 Glencoe Road.
