The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission had a trailer at Bur-Mil Park at the Fall Festival last weekend. Children got to walk through and learn about wildlife in North Carolina. The exhibit was quite popular and the rangers did a good job of answering questions. Our wildlife commission came in to being in 1947, created by the general assembly for the purpose of conserving and sustaining North Carolina's fish and wildlife resources. While they are also a regulatory agency, the wildlife agency has an education component that operates three education centers, one in the mountains, one in the Piedmont, and one in the coastal plain.
Fall is a great time in North Carolina. There are festivals and special activities everywhere. This weekend will be a great one for getting out and seeing fall foliage and spending time outdoors in the autumn glory. Wildlife is a little harder to see- but not impossible. The albino deer, now that is another issue. Only one in 30,000 is albino.
