Attention Alabama sportsmen! The Fish and Wildlife Service has issued a Comprehensive Conservation Plan that will guide management of the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Complex for the next 15 years.
The Complex is comprised of 7 refuges spreading across 12,500 square miles of northern Alabama. The draft Plan is of particular of interest to sportsmen because it intends to increase hunting and fishing opportunities. Alabama sportsmen should be sure to attend the proposed public meeting and let their voices be heard! The comment period closes May 7, and the plan can be reviewed at http://southeast.fws.gov/planning/ .
Written comments should be addressed to John Beck, Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Complex, 2700 Refuge Headquarters Road, Decatur, AL 35603. E-mailed comments can be sent to John_Beck@fws.gov.
Please send your comments today! For information on the proposed public meeting, please call 256-353-7243 ext. 32, and make plans to attend!
