Deer Haven Park – Making Local News

Brandon Roth, of WSTM TV in Syracuse New York visited Deer Haven Park last week with his photographer Dennis Harmon. They spent several hours at the park and seemed to enjoy their tour and time here. See their full story at CNYCentral.

One minor correction in the piece involves the number of white deer currently in the park. Brandon indicates that there are over 300 white deer within the park. Although there were in excess of 300 deer within the Seneca Army Depot fences in the late 60’s, actual estimates today are below 100 white deer. The good news is that since 2016, when Deer Haven Park was formed, we have seen many new white fawns and the overall health of the herd is greatly improving!

Auto Tours continue every Saturday this summer from 9 am – 6 pm, with a chicken BBQ at the park this Saturday, August 1st, from 10:30 am until the dinners are gone. Proceeds will support the continuing improvements to the habitat within Deer Haven Park.
