EDEN, N.C. (Sept. 3, 2019) —  The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. on Sept. 18 in Eden to seek input on developing a management plan for the Dan River Game Land. The meeting will be held at the Leaksville Volunteer Fire Department at 146 Beddingfield Rd. in Eden.

Commission staff will use public input from the meeting to help guide management and user activities on Dan River Game Land for the next 10 years. The game land, which encompasses 1,760 acres, is located four miles southwest of Eden on the Dan River.

“We are seeking input from all users of Dan River Game Land and others who are interested in how the property is managed,” said Chris Jordan, the Commission’s lands program coordinator.  “Everyone is encouraged to provide input, not just hunters and anglers. We want input from wildlife watchers and photographers, birding groups, hikers and others who have interest in the game land.”

The Commission is also accepting comments and suggestions from people who cannot attend the meeting. From Sept. 18 through Dec. 13, comments regarding Dan River Game Land management plan can be submitted online at ncwildlife.org/gamelandcomments.Comments also can be e-mailed, with “Dan River Game Land” in the subject line, to gamelandplan@ncwildlife.org.
