Hempstead Town biologists help manage the non-native invasive Canada goose population in the area. Residents are encouraged to contact the town's Department of Conservation and Waterways if they have an issue on their property or within their neighborhood, so biology staff can monitor the situation and assist when possible.
Town residents and businesses who have a problem with wildlife on their property can contact the Town of Hempstead Department of Conservation and Waterways at 516-431-9200. A biologist will respond to address the concern. The Town does not have permits to handle rabies-vector species (i.e., raccoons, bats).
