The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will hold its annual public outreach meeting on North Central Region Type A and B wildlife areas on Wednesday, Sept. 30 from 6-9 p.m. at the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area.
CDFW will take comments and recommendations and provide updates on habitat conditions, availability of water for wetlands and possible impacts to hunter access on public lands.
State wildlife areas to be discussed include the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area (including Little Dry Creek, Howard Slough and Llano Seco) and the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area.
According to state law (Fish and Game Code, section 1758), CDFW shall annually provide an opportunity for licensed hunters to comment and make recommendations on public hunting programs, including anticipated habitat conditions in the hunting areas on Type A and B wildlife areas, as defined under the commission’s regulations, through public meetings or other outreach. In complying with this section, CDFW may hold regional meetings on its hunting programs for several different wildlife areas.
