National Forest, Cohutta Hunters Needed At Workshop

The next workshop for the Foothills Landscape Project begins tomorrow, March 27.

Erika Cochran | March 27, 2017

Voices of sportsmen who hunt the Chattahoochee National Forest and Cohutta WMA are needed during the ongoing U.S. Forest Service planning project. Workshops will be held March 28 and 29 in Gainesville. With good forest-management strategies going forward, public land in the north Georgia mountains could see improved habitat and better wildlife populations on nearly 145,000 acres of public land across eight 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. The next workshop for the project starts tomorrow. The workshop information is as follows:

March 28: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and/or
March 29: 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
North Hall Community Center
4175 Nopone Road, Gainesville, GA 30506

The two days will build on top of each other. However, the workshops are structured to be independent from each other as well, meaning you do not have to attend both days.

This workshop will help determine the greatest needs for the area, make goal statements, as well as discuss what the Collaborative Community will recommend for the future workshops of the Foothills Landscape Project. To register for this workshop, please click here.
