Cultivator Replacement at Charles Ray Nix Wildlife Management Area

JACKSON -Projects to repair and upgrade portions of existing roads and trails at Charles Ray Nix and John Bell Williams Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) were completed this past July.  Work consisted of road and trail widening, re-establishing road crowns, erosion control, renovation of low water crossings, culvert installations, and applying gravel to road surfaces.  In addition to personnel and equipment movement, improved roads and trails will facilitate future controlled burns on each WMA by providing a permanent system of firelanes.  Vegetation within wider road rights-of-ways will be managed to provide additional cover and food for wildlife.       

The MDWFP recognizes the importance of adequate WMA access for managing wildlife habitat, conducting routine area maintenance, protecting wildlife resources, and facilitating public use.  The improvements mentioned will ensure that each of these important objectives is met by providing a reliable, safe, and easily maintained system of access.
