The Union County Department of Parks and Community Renewal has released details of its annual Deer Management Program, which will take place in Lenape Park, the Watchung Reservation and Passaic River Park beginning Monday morning, Jan. 7.

The Watchung Reservation spans almost 2,000 acres in Springfield, Mountainside, Scotch Plains, Summit, Berkeley Heights and Watchung. Lenape Park covers more than 400 acres of land in Cranford, Kenilworth, Union, Springfield and Westfield. Passaic River Park runs along the border with Morris County in Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit.

The Union County Deer Management Program will operate on Mondays from Jan. 7 to Feb. 4. In the event of a holiday or inclement weather on a Monday, the hunting activity will be moved to Wednesday that week. Hunters will be in the parks from 5 a.m. until after dark, but shooting may occur only during daylight hours.
