Description/Notes: 

The Baltimore County Forestry Board presents the workshop "Environmental Challenges - Backyard and Beyond" at the beautiful Mansion House in the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Expert speakers will provide you with answers to questions such as how deer impact the urban/suburban landscape, how invasive plant and insect species affect our native flora and fauna, how the ever-present deer tick population "ticks" and how you can protect yourself from exposure to ticks, and how to properly manage your forested property - large or small. The answers to these questions and more will be provided during this workshop sponsored by the Baltimore County Forestry Board with a Maryland Zoo Tree Tour of rare, notable, and champion trees provided as an additional bonus.  Breakfast, lunch, and all materials are included in the $30 registration fee (or $50 per couple). Registrations accepted through February 13, 2015.
