The Service boosts hunting opportunities to benefit land conservation
Grand Bay, Alabama — Head west on U.S. 90 from this old Gulf Coast farming town, turn left onto Pecan Road and then follow Bayou Heron Road through the Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge to one of Alabama’s best spots to go duck hunting.
Because you can’t easily reach one of the finest redhead-hunting sites in Alabama without first crossing the border into the Magnolia State. But that doesn’t keep dozens of Alabama duck hunters from hauling their Jon boats to the 10,200-acre, bi-state refuge each morning before the sun crests Grand Bay.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has extended until April 19, 2020, the period of time in which the public can comment on the proposed use of genetically engineered crops (GECs) on Southeastern National Wildlife Refuges.
The public is welcome to comment on the proposal, which the Service has prepared as a draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA).
