COLUMBUS — Ohio community leaders will lead an all-day conference on managing human-wildlife conflicts Nov. 15, at The Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive.
Organizers say the 2016 annual conference of the Ohio Community Wildlife Cooperative is for local government officials, community leaders, town planners and others.
Urban wildlife conflicts are increasing, and so are the challenges for local governments in managing them, said co-organizer Marne Titchenell, wildlife program specialist with Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
University researchers, city officials and wildlife specialists will speak about wildlife conflicts such as: geese management, urban coyotes, deer management and sterilization, trapping and more.
The registration deadline is Nov. 7 and cost is $35, which includes breakfast, lunch, a packet of information and a parking pass.
Conference hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information or to register visit Ohio Community Wildlife Cooperative or call 614-688-3421.
