The United States Army and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) announce that Peason Ridge Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is being renamed Fort Johnson North WMA. This change comes after the U.S. Army re-designated Fort Polk as Fort Johnson during a ceremony held June 13.
The WMA consists of 74,309 acres located 16 miles north of the Fort Johnson Joint Readiness Training Center Installation and is utilized by the U.S. Army as a military training facility while also working cooperatively with LDWF for management of habitat for wildlife resources and public outdoor recreational activities on the WMA. Major access routes to the WMA are Louisiana Highway 17, Louisiana Highway 118 and Louisiana Highway 8.
