Matthews NC Wildlife Advocates are HAWKs

Matthews NC wildlife advocates can be found in abundance every month at the HAWK meeting held at the Matthews Community Center.  HAWK is the Habitat and Wildlife Keepers chapter of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation. HAWK According to their web site, the group is committed to preserving, protecting and restoring wildlife habitat in the southeast section of the Charlotte NC area, which includes Matthews.  Although HAWK lists only 32 members on their site, their monthly meetings attract 50 to 90 people.

I've attended two of their meetings this year and highly recommend their programs to anyone interested in Matthews NC wildlife conservation.  The January meeting included a presentation about the Carolina Thread Trail, a proposed network of greenways and trails that would cover fifteen counties in the Charlotte region.  Another presentation discussed the Wildlife Action Plan of the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission.  In February, attendees, young and old, learned the basics of bird identification and broke into groups for a bird identification challenge.

HAWK's March and April programs teach the elements needed to create a backyard wildlife habitat.  The fundamentals of food, water, shelter and places for raising young were discussed in early March.  On April 7, the program will feature a landscape designer who will teach site analysis and plant selection for your own backyard.  Hummingbirds are HAWK's May topic.  All programs are free and open to the public.
