Hunters should avoid heavy equipment on Marsh Duck WMA

LINCOLN, Neb. – Hunters are advised to be cautious and avoid heavy equipment performing wetland restoration work at Marsh Duck Wildlife Management Area in York County.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission urges the public to stay at least 200 yards from all equipment on the area for their and the equipment operator’s safety. Equipment also will be crossing County Road V adjacent to the Open Fields and Waters Program site just west of Marsh Duck.

This project will improve wildlife habitat and use and recreational opportunities by removing accumulated sediment and upgrading wetland conditions.

The project is a joint effort of Game and Parks, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Nebraska Environmental Trust through the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture, and the adjacent landowners.
