Deer Management

The East Goshen Township Board of Supervisors formed the Deer Management Committee in 2007 to explore options for the Township to consider that will reduce human-to-deer conflicts throughout the Township.  The committee recommended that the Board of Supervisors adopt a Deer Management Program implementing controlled archery hunting within a number of the Township-owned open space properties.  The Board agreed and adopted the East Goshen Township Deer Management Program.

On May 23, 2017, the Board of Supervisors disbanded the Deer Committee and migrated their tasks associated with the Deer Management Program to the Township Staff.
