CFA/NYFOA Deer Exclosure Walk

HOSTED BY THE CATSKILL FOREST ASSOCIATION, INC

Join us at CFA’S Deer Exclosure Site to see what has grown in the forest after deer were excluded via an 8 foot fence three years ago. We installed the fence in the summer of 2015 with help from the New York Forest Owners Association (NYFOA). Since then, a plethora of vegetation has grown. Lets take a look together and continue the conversation on deer impacts within our forest.
