Gardening With Deer & Elk

  • Date:October 19, 2019
  • Location: Seaside

Living with nature is the North Coast experience, however, sharing your garden with deer and elk may not be what you bargained for. Those four-legged beauties view our landscapes as a potential feast and can cause significant damage to our plants. We’ll talk about some deer resistant plants and repellent techniques, and learn from each other what has worked and what has not. Free class; registration required.
