IDNR to Conduct Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Public Informational Meetings

Thu, August 30, 2018

LENA, IL – The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) has scheduled a series of public meetings to provide information about Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), its effect on future deer populations, and IDNR’s efforts to control the disease.  IDNR staff will also be available to answer questions about this disease.  Landowners, hunters, and concerned citizens are encouraged to attend.  CWD is an important issue that will dominate deer management discussions in northern Illinois for many years.

CWD is an always fatal neurological disease that is threatening the long-term health of white-tailed deer in Illinois.  First documented in Illinois in 2002 near Roscoe, Illinois, CWD has been detected in 17 counties across the northern edge and northeastern portions of Illinois, as far south as Kankakee and Livingston counties.  Counties affected include Jo Daviess, Stephenson, Winnebago, Boone, McHenry, Lake, Carroll, Ogle, Dekalb, Kane, DuPage, LaSalle, Kendall, Grundy, Will, Livingston, and Kankakee.

Although CWD has not been detected in southern Illinois, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has detected CWD in the southeastern portion of their state near St. Mary, Missouri.  The meetings scheduled in Randolph County on Sept. 18 and 19 will address developments in Missouri, and discuss IDNR plans to enhance CWD surveillance in Illinois in that area.

The meetings will begin at 7 p.m. with a 30-minute presentation and discussion to follow.  Meetings will be held as follows:
September 18 – St. Johns Lutheran Church, 302 W. Holmes St., Chester, IL
September 19 – World Shooting and Recreational Complex, 1 Main Event Lane #510, Sparta, IL
September 24 – Nash Recreation Center,304 S. 5th St., Oregon, IL
September 25 – Goose Lake Prairie State Natural Area, 5010 N. Jugtown Rd, Morris, IL
September 26 – Big Rock Community Center, 6th St, Big Rock, IL
October 2 – Orangeville Village Hall, 301 S. East St., Orangeville, IL

For more information about the meetings, or about CWD, please contact Doug Dufford, Wildlife Disease Program Manager at 815-369-2414 or by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
