The Wilkes District has an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (aka drone) for real-time aerial images and mapping. The drone has been a tool that makes conservation endeavors safer and more efficient. We also have a fully licensed commercial and government drone pilot (FAA and NC Div of Aviation). We offer services such as high resolution photography and mapping. If you're interested in drone services please contact Kayla Mounce, Natural Resource Conservation/Grants Admin at (336)452-7733 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
