Whitetails Unlimited awarded a grant to Friends of Peninsula State Park in November. The grant will help fund repairs to the park’s three deer exclosure cages, first constructed in 1992. The cages were damaged in a recent windstorm.
The exclosure cages provide study sites for university students, including one who conducted an herbivory inventory inside the cages in 2011. This student was the first recipient of an FPSP Research Endowment grant.
