Black Bear management to be discussed April 6
NEW BERN — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will conduct five public meetings to gather input regarding black bear management, with New Bern being the closest venue for County Compass readers.
The meetings will serve as an open forum to receive public comment regarding options that would change the current coastal bear hunting seasons to align with the new biological bear management units that were presented at last year’s forums
“We take these meetings seriously,” said Dr. David Cobb, chief of the Commission’s Wildlife Management Division. “Input from our constituents is invaluable to the Commission and truly helps shape our management efforts.”
The meeting begins at 7 pm on Thursday, April 6, on the campus of Craven Community College (Orringer Auditorium) located at 800 College Court in New Bern.
