Wildlife Self-Defense: Moose and Deer

Encountering wildlife is exhilarating, but if you’re not careful, it can turn dangerous quickly! Learn all about this large creature, including how to avoid too-close encounters and have a chance at defending yourself from our very own “animal.” Participants will be chosen to go through physical defensive scenarios by chance. Participants are not required to go through the physical scenario if chosen. All participants must sign a legal release of liability upon arrival at the program.
