Many Casperites live in close proximity to mule deer. We see them in our gardens or strolling nonchalantly down our streets. Whether you love them or find them pesky, this class will be of interest. We will cover mule deer ecology and management including habitat, disease, management history, and predation. We will spend one day looking at key mule deer habitats and, hopefully, find some radio-collared females and their fawns. Be prepared walk a lot on the field trip. Wear appropriate clothing and walking shoes.

There are energy conservation measures we can implement as individuals and homeowners that can save a lot of money and others that are hardly worth doing. Some measures are expensive while others are inexpensive. Some measures provide immediate return while others may take years to reap a return on investment. Learn about the benefits and pitfalls of energy conservation measures. We will visit the instructor’s passive solar home to see examples of energy conservation measures.
