MORGANTON, N.C. (Jan. 28, 2015) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is holding a public meeting on Feb. 16 in Morganton to seek input on developing a management plan for six state-owned tracts on the Commission’s Pisgah Game Land in western North Carolina.
The meeting will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and will be held at the Foothills Higher Education Center, 2128 South Sterling Street.
Wildlife Commission staff will use public input from the meeting to help guide management and user activities on the Black Bear (McDowell County), Linville River (Burke County), Little Table Rock Mountain/Rose Creek (Avery and Mitchell counties), Lutz (Caldwell County) and Roaring Creek (Avery County) tracts for the next 10 years.
The six tracts are mostly forested and populated with game species including white-tailed deer, wild turkey, squirrel, ruffed grouse and trout. In addition to hunting and fishing, hiking is a popular activity on these properties.
