Arkansas Cervids and CWD with AGFC Ken Forman
January 14 from 6:30-7:30 via Zoom
Two members of the Cervidae (or deer) Family call Arkansas home. Cervids are susceptible to a prion-borne "disease" called Chronic Wasting Disease (aka CWD). The first cases of CWD in Arkansas were confirmed five years ago. Since that time, the state‘s wildlife management agency (AGFC) has tested thousands of individual animals to know more about CWD‘s presence, prevalence, and containment possibilities within the state‘s borders.
Ken Forman, AGFC Education Specialist from Fred Berry Conservation Education Center will spend an hour or so sharing his knowledge on this fascinating study. Learn the biology of this "disease" (and why it should be in quotes), how it‘s affecting cervid herds in Arkansas, the USA, and the world, management plans for the state‘s herd, and future potential plans.
Participants will understand why a prion-borne "disease" is unlike typical diseases, what an individual can do to help stem the spread, and what can be done at the state-level.
Registrants will receive the Zoom invitation the day before the program.

SJCA wants us to lead a clean-up of the vacant lot across the street from the main entrance. That lot now belongs to SJCA and they want to clean up litter and start limbing it up. That is the #1 project for this year. We need someone to step up to lead that project, and we need to know ASAP if someone would take that on. Sandy wants to meet with the project lead later this week to walk the new property with her. I hope we can provide a leader and have several assistant leaders to help supervise that project.



The other project they want help with is clearing pastures by removing rocks in Pasture #6 as well as burning three brush piles in that area. We need several people to supervise each burn pile and a couple of people on the rock clean up. The burn project is weather dependent so it may not happen. The rock clearing project is not as difficult as it sounds because we will be moving most of those rocks a very short distance.

Activities vary, but the Sponsor is St. Josephs
