Thanks in part to your support, quail and other upland birds are benefiting from improved habitat in North Carolina’s Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. Established in 1990, the Refuge consists of over 113,000 acres in the northeastern part of the state. Many of the game species native to eastern North Carolina make their home on the Refuge. Using heavy equipment, upland habitat was improved by adding food plots and planting cover grasses in established fire breaks. All of the work was done approximately one-quarter mile from access roads. Located just six miles south of Columbia off Highway 94, the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge provides public hunting for deer and small game plus fishing and wildlife watching opportunities. Next time you are in the Columbia area, take a time out for wildlife and see your support at work.
