There will be a 45 minute presentation on Minimizing Risk from Lyme Disease by representatives of the US Department of Agriculture Parasite Biology Laboratory and the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Following that, there will be a 30 minute review of the Montgomery County Deer Management Group's Annual (FY 2002) Report in the Deer Management Plan and Recommendations for FY 2003. It was this group that recommended reducing the number of deer in our area by a controlled hunt; this hunt was announced by signs posted in our area in the recent past. Now that the hunt is completed, you may be interested in the details and the future plans.Copies of the report and recommendations are posted at
