The Goose Academy is a two-day training on the management of Canada geese (Branta canadensis) offered by the National Wildlife Control Operators Association (NWCOA). I have the pleasure of being part of the training team under the leadership of Master NWCOA Instructor, Vikki Rawe.
We just finished a training event in Middleton, NY on June 26-7, 2014. It was two-days of presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on control. We covered, marketing, pyrotechnics, use of dogs, lasers, boats, goose biology, laws, and round ups.
