Deer Management

Crum Creek

The well-being of the Crum Woods, its flora and fauna, as well as the health of the surrounding community, is being affected by the deer population in the local woods. Swarthmore College is interested in protecting and preserving the great variety of plant and animal life in the woods, maintaining a healthy deer population, and minimizing risks to the various communities who depend upon and enjoy the Crum Woods. As a community our goal is to pursue a humane, science-based strategy for managing the deer population in the Crum Woods.
