HAW CREEK INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN URBAN BEAR STUDY
The HCCA has heard our neighbors’ concerns about the increasing bear activity in the neighborhood. We are excited to share that Haw Creek has been invited to participate in the second phase of the Urban/Suburban Black Bear Study, a collaborative research project between NCSU and the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. Since 2014, the researchers have been live-trapping and GPS-radio-collaring resident black bears in Asheville to learn about urban black bear spatial ecology, movements, demography, and reproduction. If Haw Creek residents decide to participate in the study, we will provide the researchers with live-trap sites. We will also voluntarily participate in BearWise, a regional program that promotes responsible co-habitation with black bears through bear-proofing strategies. The second phase of the project provides Asheville communities with an exciting opportunity to be directly involved in wildlife research efforts, and assist in providing science-based information to create informed and effective management plans for black bears in urban/suburban areas. Please join the HCCA for a very important community meeting regarding our participation in the study: Black Bear Study & BearWise Community MeetingTuesday, April 23 at 7:00 pmSt. John’s Episcopal Church Sanctuary Researchers Jennifer Strules and Ashley Hobbes will help us understand what becoming BearWise-compliant entails and how individual households will participate. Participation in this study will require a high level of community cooperation, so this is our opportunity to learn more and ask questions before deciding to move forward. Please make plans now to attend this important community meeting.
Membership in the Association is available to residents, as well as property owners, in the Haw Creek community.
Memberships are payable in January although you can join at any time. Only $12 per Household
The Association needs your participation to keep communications flowing. In an effort to make membership affordable for more community members, we keep the amount low. However, membership fees alone fall short of the money required to publish and mail newsletters, and maintain a website. If you are able to contribute beyond the membership amount, your tax-deductible donation will be greatly appreciated by the Haw Creek community.
You may pay by check or pay online through PayPal (no PayPal account necessary – credit cards accepted) by clicking on the “donate” button below.
If paying by check, make your check for $12 to HCCA and mail to: HCCA P.O. Box 9193 Asheville, NC 28815
If not printed on your check, please write: member names, postal address, phone number, and e-mail address in the memo area.
The holidays are quickly upon us. We thought it would be an good idea to help the Haw Creek community out by providing a list of homes that are welcoming Trick-or-Treators for Halloween on October 31st.
This is our second year doing this. Last year was a big success with over 25 homes participating.
If you would like to let us know if you are welcoming trick-or-treators, email us HERE and we will add you to the list. GO TO our calendar page HERE. to see the list of homes to visit for Halloween.
