Free Educational Program on Managing Conflicts with Canada Geese



To biologists, Canada geese are an outstanding conservation success story. Once extirpated from the state, Ohio now supports a healthy population. However, to a landowner, they can be viewed as nuisances that lead to conflicts. Learn more about conflict management with Canada geese during a free public program on Thursday, February 21, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

The program will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Division of Wildlife District One headquarters located at 1500 Dublin Road, Columbus Ohio 43215.

The seminar will be led by ODNR Division of Wildlife staff that specializes in dealing with goose conflicts. Topics to be covered will not only include conflict management but also Canada goose biology, ecology and population trends.

This program is best suited for ages 16 and up. The program is free but pre-registration is required as seating is limited. Please call 614-644-3925 or email derek.klein@dnr.state.oh.us.
