For the first time in more than a year, an in-person public meeting will be held to learn about work taking place to restore Lake Mattamuskeet in Hyde County. The North Carolina Coastal Federation along with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and Hyde County Government will be hosting the public meeting on Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. at the Hyde County Government Complex in Swan Quarter.

This meeting will provide an opportunity to hear about the problems plaguing the lake and surrounding areas and recent actions and future plans to restore the state’s largest natural freshwater lake. These organizations are hoping the public will provide feedback as they look to move forward with restoration plans, reported the North Carolina Coastal Federation in a newsletter.
