Experts to discuss feral hogs

Event Date(s)

Begins: May 14, 2019 7:00 pm
Ends: May 14, 2019 8:00 pm

Wild hogs feed by rooting with their broad snouts, often disturbing soil and leaving the area looking like a plowed field, much to the dismay of property owners.

An expert panel will discuss field and lawn damage caused by the free-roaming hogs at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, at the Volusia County Agricultural Center, 3100 E. New York Ave., DeLand.

The presentation is part of the Living with Wildlife Series offered by the University of Florida/Volusia County Extension. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month from April through August.

The $5 registration fee can be paid at the door with cash or checks made payable to University of Florida.

Reservations are not required. For more information, contact Cynthia Rabey at 386-822-5778 or cynthia.rabey@ufl.edu.
