Public Hearing on Saving the Headwaters Tract – Today

Headwaters - East Fork Falls

The Transylvania County Commissioners will hold a public hearing today (Nov. 22) at 7 p.m. to consider submitting a letter to the NC Wildlife Resources Commission expressing County support for saving an 8,000 acre tract of the Headwaters of the East Fork of the French Broad River.

The hearing will be held at the Transylvania County Courthouse on 7 East Main St. in Brevard.

The Conservation Fund is considering purchasing the tract to add to the North Carolina Game Lands. But it depends on it being managed by the Wildlife Resources Commission. The NC Wildlife Resource Commission passed a resolution on Nov. 4 expressing support for managing the East Fork Headwaters as NC Gamelands. However, the funding is still a problem.

There will be presentations by staff from Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy and Wildlife Resources Commission – and us, the public.
