Fish and Game to Hold Biennial Public Hearings
CONCORD, N.H. - The public has a chance to offer input on any aspect of New Hampshire Fish and Game Department operations at two upcoming biennial hearings. The first session will be on Wednesday, October 17, 2007, at 6:30 p.m. at Fish and Game headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord; the second hearing will be held on Wednesday, November 7, 2007, at 6:30 p.m. at Fish and Game's Region 1 Office on Route 3 (629B Main Street) in Lancaster.
"The biennial hearings give hunters, anglers and others who care about wildlife in New Hampshire a chance to come and speak their minds," said Donald S. Clarke, Acting Executive Director of Fish and Game. "We welcome the public to come and share their ideas about how we can serve them better."
The hearings are held in odd-numbered years to provide the public with an opportunity to make comments on, and suggest changes to, fishing and hunting rules, wildlife management strategies and other Fish and Game functions. Members of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission, Executive Director Clarke and other Fish and Game staff will be present at the hearings to answer questions.
Those who are unable to attend the hearings may send written comments or suggestions by November 30, 2007, by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org (please put "biennial hearings" in subject line); or write to: Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or fax (603) 271-1438.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
