The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will be among the exhibitors at the Fourth Annual Cape Fear Wildlife Expo, March 16-18, in the Wilmington Convention Center at 515 Nutt Street in downtown Wilmington.

The Wildlife Expo features outdoor exhibits and demonstrations on hunting, fishing and boating, as well as camping, wildlife art and more.

The Commission’s contributions to the Expo will consist of fish-and-game exhibits and activities with youth- and family-oriented themes, including:

·         A simulated waterfowl hunt called “Mallard Madness” that features laser shot;

·         A Huntmaster mobile lift demonstration to illustrate how the Commission helps provide hunting opportunities for sportsmen and women who are mobility impaired;

·         A magazine display where visitors can subscribe to the award-winning Wildlife in North Carolina magazine;

·         The Sensory Safari — a kid-friendly wildlife exhibit-on-wheels — that will give Expo visitors a chance to learn about North Carolina’s wildlife by listening to the sounds of birds, seeing animal mounts and handling pelts of some common North Carolina mammals; and,

·         A mobile aquarium, which features two 300-gallon fish tanks mounted in a trailer to give people an underwater glimpse of some of North Carolina’s game fish species found in the mountains and coastal plain.

In addition to the exhibits, the Commission will participate in several events throughout the weekend, including the Expo’s “Kids Gone Wild” academic workshops and a self-guided “Wild Child Scavenger Hunt.”  Commission staff will help present a clinic Friday afternoon on “Black Bears in Southeastern North Carolina.” On Sunday, Commission staff will lead a presentation on the popular Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program.

Visit the Cape Fear Wildlife Expo website for event times, admission prices and up-to-date information, including a list of all displays, demonstrations and exhibits.
