OLF Public Hearing Held Monday

Hearings on the Navy's Outlying Landing Field Or O.L.F. proposal start Monday night at Mattamuskeet Elementary School. The State Wildlife Resources Commission Questions a Navy's proposal to control birds around the site near the Pocosin Wildlife Refuge. The Navy says they want to use, Avitrol, a pesticide to kill the birds but the Wildlife Commission is concerned about the effects this could have on migratory birds that frequent the area. The hearings begin with an Information Session at 4:30 PM at Mattamuskett Elementary School In Swan Quarter and the formal hearing starts at 7PM.
