BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - Volunteers are wanted to help count deer at the Homestead National Monument in southeast Nebraska.

The annual count will be held on Saturday, starting at 9:30 a.m. No experience is needed to help.

Some of the volunteers will walk about three-quarters of a mile through tallgrass prairie. Others will be stationed at points along the boundaries of the monument to count deer as they leave the area.

Officials encourage volunteers to wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, good walking shoes and an appropriate coat.

The monument sits four miles west of Beatrice, along Nebraska Highway 4.
