Campus curbing deer damage to arboretum

Large populations of deer on the UW-Green Bay campus are damaging forest understory plants in the Cofrin Arboretum and threatening the ecology and beauty of the natural area. In order to better manage deer populations the UW-Green Bay campus participates in the City of Green Bay archery depredation hunt. Hunters apply through the City of Green Bay and must pass a background check and proficiency test and must follow special rules set by the City. The assignment of hunting locations are determined by the hunt administrator. You may see bow hunters dressed in camouflage walking to and from parking areas and their designated hunt locations in the arboretum. As always, if you see something that you feel is suspicious or out of the ordinary, please call Public Safety at 2300 (non-emergency) or 911 (emergency).
