Habitat Restoration Efforts at Macon County Conservation District
Upland Game Hunting
The Macon County Conservation District offers upland game hunting at Friends Creek Conservation Area’s Upland Game Management Area. These single-day hunts generally run from early November through December.
When settlers established farms and villages, they snuffed out the natural process of fire. Since 1978, the Macon County Conservation District has used prescribed burns to restore conservation areas.
Deer Herd Management
To maintain a balance between the white-tailed deer population and other species, the Conservation District has initiated a limited archery hunting program.
Exotic Species Removal
Exotic species are those plants and animals that are from somewhere other than Macon County. Some of these exotics are very invasive and take over.
All programs and facilities of the Macon County Conservation District are offered on a non-discriminatory basis. MCCD does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, age, sex, country of origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or military status.
