Written by 

Western North Carolina Wildlife Advocates — including Wild South, Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education, the Jackson-Macon Conservation Alliance, and representatives from Mountain Wildlife Days, among others — will will gather at 1 p.m. on Friday March 11 at Haywood Community College’s main campus auditorium to discuss and hear presentations regarding wildlife.

Participants will discuss their approach to wildlife education and some of the opportunities available in WNC. Upcoming and ongoing wildlife events and projects will be shared along with unique wildlife educational approaches currently being utilized by some educators.

The meeting will also include a panel and audience participation of the current political climate at both the state and national levels regarding conservation of wildlife. Some important legislation, recently passed in the U.S. House of Representatives, will be examined.

In addition, a continuing effort will be made to hear the concerns of the residents and visitors to WNC regarding wildlife and related issues at this and future meetings.

Wildlife Advocates meetings are open to both individuals and organizations in WNC. A sign up process to present concerns is available prior to each meeting or by contacting Ben at Wild South 828.258.2667 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Standing in the Belhurst Castle, a Great Gatsby-esque property situated on Seneca Lake in Geneva, N.Y., I realized it had been around a decade since my childhood friends and I had been in the same room together. And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
