Wednesday, July 21, 2010

The Massachusetts Fisheries and Wildlife Board is seeking public input and comment on the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife's habitat management activities on wildlife management areas. Wildlife enthusiasts, naturalists,hunters, anglers, birders, wildlife management area users and other conservation-minded citizens are invited to a public informational meeting scheduled at the Lenox Town Hall Auditorium, 6 Walker Street, Lenox, at 7PM. The meeting will include a presentation about the Division's wildlife habitat management goals, habitat management practices and wildlife outcomes on its wildlife lands and will include a question and answer period.

"The Division's mission is to conserve the Commonwealth's wildlife diversity in perpetuity for the benefit and enjoyment of its citizens," notes Tom O'Shea, DFW Assistant Director of Wildlife. "The agency is obligated to restore and sustain healthy wildlife populations of all kinds. This public meeting will provide interested citizens with the scientific background and biological results for grassland, shrubland, and forest management activities carried out on DFW lands to provide critical habitats for declining types of wildlife." Two more public informational meetings will be scheduled in other parts of the state. One meeting will be held in August in theConnecticut River Valley area and the other will be scheduled in September in eastern Massachusetts. Information on those meetings will be posted in the Public Meetings area of the Division's website (www.mass.gov/masswildlife) when details are finalized.
