“These areas are closed November 1 through March 15, primarily as waterfowl and eagle refuges. We appreciate public cooperation in protecting these important areas for wildlife,” said Steve Bloemer, LBL Wildlife Program Manager. “The majority of wintering eagles and waterfowl will have begun migrating back north by early to mid-March, permitting the refuges to be re-opened.”
Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area is temporarily closed, as of March 9, due to receiving nearly four inches of rainfall in a 24-hour period resulting in extremely saturated soil conditions. Turkey Bay staff will re-evaluate trail conditions as the weather improves.
Turkey Bay staff strongly encourages users to “Call Before You Haul” to check current trail conditions at 270-924-2000, option 3, or visit us on the web at www.lbl.org, then click on Alerts & Notices on the left side of the page.
