The Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Dallas will host an Urban Wildlife Management conference July 29.

The conference will be from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. in Building C of the center, located at 17360 Coit Road in Dallas. Lunch is included.

“Anyone working with or interested in managing wildlife populations will benefit from attending this program,” said Janet Hurley, AgriLife Extension urban integrated pest management specialist, Dallas. ”It will include presentations and discussion from experts from across the state and elsewhere who will address ways to successfully manage wildlife issues.”

“Wildlife to be covered in the program include coyotes, bobcats, birds, bats, small mammals and snakes,” she said. “There also will be discussion on diseases associated with wildlife and how to deal with the media. This promises to be a fact-filled day.”

She said specific presentation topics will be living with bats in an urban setting, wildlife feeding ordinances and leash laws, rodent management, zoonotic diseases, and Texas laws and rules governing wildlife control.

The cost is $30 per person and seating is limited. Attendees must preregister by July 23 to ensure a spot at the program and an accurate lunch count.
