Geese and Wildlife Summit
June 20, 2013

Download and Print the Announcement - PDF

As previously announced, the 'Geese Summit' has finally been scheduled:

THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013

7 - 9 PM

SCARSDALE PUBLIC LIBRARY, SCOTT AUDITORIUM

54 OLMSTEAD AVENEUE

SCARSDALE, NY 10583

(914) 722-1300

FREE PARKING IS AVAILABLE

REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.  WE WILL BE EXTENDING INVITATIONS TO COUNTY-WIDE OFFICIALS, MAYORS, ETC.  

Several local senators have already pledged their attendance.    Scarsdale is, of course, the scene - and this library in particular - of a previous geese slaughter request by the village govt. which was turned around by advocate's intervention.

We have broadened the summit to include 'Tips on living with wildlife,'  in order to address beliefs the public has, such as 'Do all racoons carry rabies in their saliva?' and  'How dangerous are coyotes?' etc, in light of recent coyote sightings in Westchester which are reported with alarm by the media.  

There will be an in-person demonstration of the Goosinator by county officials, the Geesebusters method, and several other 'deterrent' methods such as the decoy coyote, an artificial 'predator' alligator, as well as an overview of egg oiling and habitat 'modification.'

We will also discuss the use of the Naturesweep cleaning system, avian birth control, address the truth about 'donations' of geese flesh to the poor, question whether there really is an 'overpopulation' of geese, and debunk the supposed 'health hazard' the geese pose to humans;  video of a USDA geese roundup will be shown, which the public rarely sees.

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT WILL BE REPEATED PRIOR TO THE EVENT

HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE
