Natural resources management at Oakland County Parks focuses on an ecosystem approach to ensuring the health and function of park natural communities. Control of deer densities, removal of invasive species, application of prescribed burns, and reintroduction of native plants are among the suite of land management tools applied to achieve this goal.
In an effort to manage deer densities at ecologically-sustainable levels within the parks system, Oakland County Parks offers open archery and managed hunting opportunities. See sections below for information and dates. The PDF documents linked here provide details about the programs:
