Sherburne Wildlife Management Area will reopen Monday (Aug. 1), after being closed in May due to flooding associated with the opening of the Morganza Spillway, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced today.

The public shooting ranges that include the rifle, handgun, archery and shotgun range are included in the reopening.

The public is reminded that Louisiana Highway 975 south from U.S. Highway 190 remains closed, so access is restricted to Louisiana Highway 975 from Interstate 10 to the Sherburne WMA Headquarters.
