In-Person Modules In-person learning of individual topics

NDA's Deer Steward Modules are topic-specific, where attendees focus on only one aspect of deer management over a couple of days. Each stand-alone in-person Module is led by industry experts, comes with a certificate of completion, and does not require previous Deer Steward certification.

2024 In-Person Modules

Program Overview

The NDA’s Deer Steward in-person modules were developed with the goal of increasing your knowledge and understanding of one specific topic from our Levels 1 and 2 courses. The modules take a more detailed look into a particular area of interest that requires an expanded focus to fully cover the principles and objectives of the subject.

Each course was designed with our members and supporters in mind to provide exciting and unique educational opportunities that build upon the current foundation of the Deer Steward program.
