Special meeting of TWRC to be held July 15 via conference call

NASHVILLE, Tn (TWRA) - A special called meeting of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission will be held via conference call on July 15 at 10 a.m. (CDT). The only item on the agenda is a rule which establishes bear dog training sessions in the Cherokee National Forest.

Commission members will address concerns of the U.S. Forest Service regarding possible conflicts over the Labor Day holiday weekend. Since the TWRC was not scheduled to meet in July, the special meeting will be conducted by the conference call, so that any possible changes will be effective prior to the holiday.

Interested members of the public and media representatives wishing to attend the conference call should be seated by 10 a.m. in the main conference room of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's Nashville office. The office is located in the Ellington Agricultural Center at 5107 Edmondson Pike.

The TWRC will return to its meeting schedule in August. The TWRC next meeting will be held August 20-21 at Paris Landing State Park. The meetings days will be a Thursday and Friday, a change from the regular Wednesday-Thursday schedule.
