White-tail deer are once again abundant in southeastern Massachusetts, but this was not always the case. Over-hunting and development once pushed the white-tail deer to the brink of extinction. But the white-tail deer has successfully rebounded, due to successful stewardship. Join the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation at Myles Standish State Forest to learn about the white-tail deer and how the relationship between man and deer has changed over time. This is an all-ages program. Meet in front of the interpretive center at the forest headquarters. Rain or shine.

Cost: Free
