Berry College Dana Professor of Animal Science, George Gallagher, will present “White-tailed Deer: We love them, We love them not!” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 16 at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum. Gallagher will discuss deer at Berry College and give a brief history of importance for reintroducing deer to other parts of the state. He'll also discuss all the research that has been done at Berry College related to minimizing damage to gardens and plants. This lecture is the final installment of the five-part Sanctuary at Berry Lecture Series hosted by Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum during the run of their newest exhibition, “Sanctuary at Berry: Wildlife Photography by Gena Flanigen.” The lectures focus on the research and experience of faculty members with various species found on the Berry campus. After the lecture on June 16, guests are welcome to view the exhibition and will have the chance to speak with both Gallagher and Flanigen. The exhibition features work by Flanigen and explores Berry’s wild inhabitants, including a variety of birds, mammals and reptiles. Sharing these images offers a chance to examine the rich history of the coexistence of humans and wild animals on the college campus. This event is free and open to the public.
