    I would like to know whether your organization endorses hunting or works with hunters. I am against all forms of hunting, but esp. urban/suburban hunting of deer for “conservation” sake. I would like to know if this presenter, Peter Lowe, uses hunting or “culling” or ANY lethal measures at his Dawes Arboretum.

      Hello Lucy, Our organization doesn’t endorse hunting or related activities. We are strictly working to help people use more native plants in their landscapes. As for what goes on at Dawes, I do not know. I doubt that Dawes Arboretum does that, however.
