Chattahoochee National Forest, Cohutta WMA Hunters Voices Needed

The next phase for the Foothills Landscape Project has begun, and hunter input is needed.

Erika Cochran | March 13, 2017

Chattahoochee National Forest and Cohutta WMA hunters are encouraged to participate in an ongoing U.S. Forest Service planning project in an effort to improve habitat and boost game populations on nearly 145,000 acres of public-hunting land across eight north Georgia counties.

The Foothills Landscape Project began with a series of Community Conversation meetings in the fall of 2016, followed by a winter workshop in late January. If you missed that first workshop, two online seminars will be available this week that will allow interested hunters to catch up in the process. The webinar information is as follows:

Wednesday March 15, 2017 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Thursday March 16, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Click HERE to join the webinar meeting, and then call in on the Conference Line for the audio at (888) 844-9904 Access Code 1839850#.

After the webinars, a second workshop will be held March 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on March 29 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the North Hall County Community Center at 4175 Nopone Road, Gainesville, GA 30506. The two days will build on top of each other. However, you do not have to attend both days, and you can simply drop in during the workshops to accommodate your schedule.

This workshop will be to define the goals of the Foothills Landscape Project. To register for the second workshop, please click here.
