The deer-fence seminar and workshop for south Georgia will be June 15 at the UGA Attapulgus Research Farm a mile north of Attapulgus, Ga., on Highway 27.
The other program will be June 22 at the UGA Georgia Mountain Experiment Station 3 miles south of Blairsville, Ga., on Highway 129.
Participants will get a set of plans for building deer fences. And they can get hands-on experience as UGA and industry experts erect fencing at the UGA stations.
Each program will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided, and registration is free.
If you'd like to attend, please call Kay Dunn at (912) 386-3410 so planners can know how much lunch to prepare. If you'd like to work with the fencing, bring a shovel, hammer and gloves.
