  • Deer dilemma, July 1, 2004 (Vol. 24, #1)

      Tasty treat? A 10-foot fence, which was constructed in 1987 around the meadows, conference center and formal gardens, has done little to deter deer from eating and damaging cultivated areas at Robert Allerton Park, Monticello. More worrisome to biologists is the adverse impact the herd is having on the natural areas.
