Wildlife Resources Commission Awarded Funding for Land Acquisition

Record #:
A $4.3 million grant from the Natural Heritage Trust enabled the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission to purchase six additional game lands tracts totaling 14,000 acres. The largest tract was the 5,784-acre Van Swamp located in Beaufort and Washington Counties. Others tracts were located in Hayward, Caldwell, Wilkes, Avery, Rutherford, and Ashe counties. The purchases add land to the game lands program and provide more acreage for hunting, fishing, and recreation.
