To celebrate North Carolina’s rich hunting, fishing and wildlife conservation heritage, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is hosting or supporting seven family-friendly events across the state on Sept. 26.
The events, part of National Hunting and Fishing Day 2015, will be open to the public free of charge, with the exception of two Greenwing fishing events. Each event will feature a variety of hands-on, outdoor-related activities suitable for all ages and abilities. Activities and exhibits will vary from event to event, but all will provide opportunities for participants to connect with nature while improving outdoor skills in fishing, kayaking, archery, air rifle shooting, fly-casting, identifying aquatic insects, outdoor cooking, arrowhead making and much more.
Other activities include retrieving demonstrations by sporting dogs, live reptile and amphibian exhibits and live birds of prey exhibits.
