RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 11, 2013) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will open its State Fair exhibit in Raleigh on Oct. 17, with displays highlighting the many diverse outdoor opportunities it offers the public, from hunting and fishing to boating and wildlife watching.
The exhibit, located downhill from the Village of Yesteryear, is open to the public from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Oct.17 and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Oct. 18-27.
Visitors can check out a 12-foot wall map that displays all the places they can hunt, fish, trap, boat and watch wildlife in North Carolina.
