MCA Deer Management for Forest Health Committee

The Metrowest Conservation Alliance (MCA) formed the Deer Management for Forest Health Committee in 2019 to create a regional approach to deer management that would positively impact the health of our forests. The success of our individual programs will depend on a coordinated, multi-strategy regional approach that includes municipalities, conservation organizations, and other landowners. 

Our priorities include:

  • Improving public education on deer overabundance,
  • The role of hunting as a management practice,
  • Sharing resources, and
  • Providing training events for staff and volunteers on how to assess deer populations and provide data the state can use in its annual population assessments.
