At last week’s Rotary meeting, Jason Lupardus, a regional wildlife biologist with the National Wild Turkey Federation, addressed the club with particulars on the NWTF’s Save the Habitat, Save the Hunt campaign. The campaign is committed to raising $1.2 billion to conserve and enhance more than 4 million acres of essential upland wildlife habitat, create at least 1.5 million new hunters and open access to 500,000 new acres for hunting, shooting and outdoor enjoyment. A local NWTF Hunting Heritage banquet will be hosted on Feb. 22 at the Sally Wells building by the Macon County Longbeards. For more information on NWTF visit their website at nwtf.org.
The Rotary club is a service organization devoted to various projects supporting the community-at-large, including Makin’ Macon Fit, the Macon County 3rd Graders Dictionary Initiative, Boy Scouts, the Macon County High School Interact Club and the Junior High Interact Club, as well as scholarships.
