WASHINGTON (Jan. 29, 2015) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is holding a public meeting Feb. 18 to seek input in developing a management plan for Goose Creek Game Land located in Beaufort and Pamlico counties.

The meeting, which is scheduled for 7-9 p.m., will be held at the Washington Fire-EMS Station 2, located at 2064 W 15th Street, in Washington.

Wildlife Commission staff will use public input from the meeting to help guide management and user activities on Goose Creek Game Land for the next 10 years. Goose Creek Game Land is adjacent to the Pamlico River and encompasses more than 7,000 acres.

“We are seeking input from all users of the Goose Creek Game Land and others who are interested in how the property is managed,” said Lands Program Manager Isaac Harrold. “This meeting is not just for hunters and anglers. It is for wildlife watchers and photographers, birding groups, hikers, and others who have interest in Goose Creek Game Land. Everyone is encouraged to provide input.”

The Commission also will accept comments and suggestions from people who cannot attend the meeting. Beginning Feb. 16, people can submit comments regarding the Goose Creek Game Land management plan at www.ncwildlife.org.
