The floodplain of the Roanoke River has one of the mid-Atlantic states' most diverse eco-systems. Protecting the quality of the river is an on-going concern. In 1999, plans to build a paper plant near Weldon and more recently a company's plan to turn eighteen miles of the river into a barge canal were both canceled through citizens' protests. Still, concern exists as to whether that support will continue into the future, especially in an area where industry is needed and jobs are scarce.
The North Carolina Resources Commission's 2001 waterfowl stamp and print is titled \"Black Ducks at Price's Creek Lighthouse\" and was painted by Virginia artist Ron Louque, who also painted the 2000 stamp and print. Price's Creek Lighthouse dates to 1849 and was one of a chain of lighthouses along the lower Cape Fear River. Proceeds from sales of the stamp and print support wetland habitat protection for migratory waterfowl.
