A public meeting describing the project will be held Tuesday August 21, from 6-7pm in the Boardroom at the Town of Nags Head building located at 5401 Croatan Hwy, Nags Head, NC.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore (Seashore) is planning to construct a new accessible hunting blind and wildlife viewing platform on Bodie Island.
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) the National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public input to help prepare an environmental assessment (EA) to analyze impacts associated with the proposed construction of these facilities.
This project would enhance visitor opportunities by (1) providing an accessible waterfowl hunt blind and a wildlife viewing platform with boardwalk for all visitors; (2) meeting the Secretary of the Interior's goal to create more hunting and fishing opportunities on federal lands and (3) providing new educational opportunities to learn about migratory shorebirds within a premier estuarine wetland.
