RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 27, 2015) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has posted on its website the final versions of seven game land management plans.

The Commission developed the plans to provide a management framework for these public lands that balances science-based conservation practices with public access and usage. The Commission solicited input at local meetings and online to provide opportunities to the public to comment on game lands management.

Management plans are available for the following game lands:

  • ·         Green River, comprising 14,331 acres in Henderson and Polk counties
  • ·         Holly Shelter, comprising 64,743 acres in Pender County
  • ·         Lower Roanoke River Wetland, comprising 10,200 of state-owned acres in Martin and Bertie counties
  • ·         R. Wayne Bailey-Caswell, comprising 17,788 acres in Caswell County
  • ·         Sandhills, comprising 62,735 acres  in Hoke, Moore, Scotland and Richmond counties
  • ·         Sandy Mush, comprising 2,832 acres in Buncombe and southern Madison counties
  • ·         Suggs Mill, comprising 11,044 acres in Bladen and Cumberland counties   

Each management plan has general information about the game land itself, including physical attributes, infrastructure, potential improvements, and other amenities found on the game land. Each plan is the culmination of a broad array of input, ideas and needs expressed by land managers and public users of the game lands. The plans are living documents and are meant to change as conditions and conservation and public needs change.

The seven plans are the first of many that the Commission has been developing since 2013. Download the game land plans and learn more about the Game Land Program in North Carolina.
