Access Improvements Planned for Charles Ray Nix WMA

JACKSON -The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) has plans to repair and improve access at Charles Ray Nix Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Panola County.  Work will include stabilizing a number of creek crossings, replacing culverts, repairing sections of WMA roads, and making parking area improvements. 

When completed, the improvements will restore management access to more remote parts of the WMA, reduce erosion, and provide better access for WMA visitors.  Work is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2013 with some "on-the-ground" preparations already occurring for the proposed project.

The MDWFP recognizes the importance of access for managing wildlife habitat, conducting general maintenance, protecting wildlife resources, and providing for public use on wildlife management areas.  The scheduled improvements will ensure that each of these important objectives is met by providing a reliable, safe, and efficient access system.
