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.
