The migration habits and patterns of Southern Oregon's black-tailed deer will be the topic Tuesday when the Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation hosts its second in a series of lectures in Central Point.

The presentation will be by Mark Vargas, an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist who studied the region's black-tailed deer and authored the state's Black-Tailed Deer Management Plan.

Vargas will use both slides and video to discuss blacktail migration, followed by a question-and-answer session.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Bob and Phyllis Mace Watchable Wildlife Memorial Center at the Jackson County Expo grounds, 1 Peninger Road.

Admission is $5 per person, but free for Oregon Wildlife supporters.

The third and final Tuesday presentation in this series will be March 25. It will feature ODFW biologist Steve Niemela discussing the agency's Pacific Fisher Monitoring Project.
