ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The public will have an opportunity to visit restricted portions of three Wildlife Management Areas in Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties for the next two weeks.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation says Perch River in Jefferson County and Upper and Lower Lakes and Wilson Hill wildlife management areas in St. Lawrence County will be open to visitors through Friday, Aug. 29.

This is the 19th year DEC will open the wildlife management area wetlands for expanded public access. For most of the year, these wetlands are off limits to the public to provide feeding and resting areas for migratory waterfowl.

The restricted wetland areas are also used by a number of New York State’s endangered, threatened, and rare species including bald eagles, black terns, and northern harriers.
