The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) invites you to attend the Telogia Creek Wildlife Management Area 10-year Land Management Plan public hearing in Liberty County on Tuesday, March 5. The public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. ET at the Veterans Memorial Civic Center at 10405 NW Theo Jacobs Way, in Bristol.

The Telogia Creek WMA encompasses approximately 12,384 acres in Liberty County and consists of mostly pine plantations. The Telogia Creek WMA also conserves an abundance of surface water tributaries, which drain into Bear Branch, Bumpy Bay Drain, Devil’s Branch and Rattlesnake Branch, among others, and provides significant watershed and water quality protection. The Telogia Creek WMA will offer many opportunities for public recreation, including hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, bird watching, hiking, bicycling and horseback riding.

“The Telogia Creek WMA was purchased to ensure the preservation of fish, wildlife, and other natural and cultural resources for future generations, and to provide fish and wildlife-based outdoor recreation opportunities for the public,” said Elizabeth Norregaard, FWC land conservation planner. “The Land Management Plan will specify how we intend to accomplish that goal.”

The public is encouraged to attend and will have the opportunity to comment on and ask questions regarding the Land Management Plan. Maps, drawings and other information will be available on display.
