Sharing your space with wildlife can be enriching, but unwanted wildlife activity can also damage gardens and become a nuisance. Join the Vermilion County Master Gardeners and Educator Ryan Pankau for Wildlife Management in Your Landscape on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 6 p.m. in the Danville Public Library, 319 N Vermilion St, Danville, IL 61832.

Learn how to coexist with these common animals – deer, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, raccoons, and groundhogs – by understanding their ecological roles and implementing humane management strategies. Discover how to create a backyard oasis that attracts desirable wildlife while minimizing unwanted visitors.
