There are significant impacts of deer and invasive plant species on forests and woodlands, and these deer and plant impacts can interact. Join Dr. Bernd Blossey of the Cornell University Department of Natural Resources for this webinar. Bernd will introduce new metrics on how to assess deer damage and then discuss implementation of suburban deer management programs in the Ithaca area. These new approaches have resulted in substantial deer reductions in several towns and may function as a blueprint for other communities struggling to find their own process to deal with overabundant deer herds.
Instructions for registering and attending this webinar:
- Read all these instructions.
- You need a personal registration ID to join this month’s webinar. There is unlimited space for participants, the ID simply provides you the necessary access code. Obtain your registration ID via: https://cornell.webex.com/cornell/onstage/g.php?MTID=e9bc1ba3add2cf523230e030e48133fa7 If prompted for a password, use C0rne11F0rest (the word “CornellForest” except the o = zero= 0 and L = the number 1; the numbers are in red font).
- On the webpage where the above link takes you, look for the option to “register” to receive your “registration id” number. Note this page also includes the option to download resources related to this webinar (if available).
- Wait for the email that contains your personal “registration id” number (a couple minutes at most usually).
- Join the webinar via the “click here” button in this email to open into your default web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox). The “click here” button should open into the webinar, or display a page indicating the webinar is not active. If the webinar is not active, that means the host isn’t connected and you will need to wait until the host connects. If the page opens into a rather generic “Cisco WebEx” page then your browser may not be compatible with WebEx and you should copy and paste the full link found in the email (following “click here”) into an alternate web browser. Using an alternate web browser usually solves most connection problems.
- Test the sound capacity of your computer by accessing a website with sound (e.g., video clip on a news website, Youtube, etc.).
- As you enter the webinar, you may be asked to test your media player. If so, you will need to complete that step.
- As you enter the webinar, you will be given the option to download software; you can bypass that step and enter the webinar directly. I’m not aware of any problems that have arisen from downloading the software (which streamlines subsequent access, but you should make this decision for yourself.)
