LWFC gives final approval to NOI establishing regulations for ecotours on Pearl River and Maurepas Swamp WMAs

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission gave final approval to a notice of intent (NOI) to establish regulations for ecotours on Pearl River and Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs). The action came during the Commission’s May meeting Thursday, May 2, in Baton Rouge.

The NOI will establish a process whereby permitted ecotours would be allowed in order to provide this activity in a manner consistent with and conducive to WMA management.

A special use permit would be necessary from LDWF to conduct these tours. To see the notice of intent, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/resources/category/commission-action-items.
