A man who grew up in Grambling is now in charge of the five national wildlife refuges in north Louisiana.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says that Maury Bedford is project manager for the D’Arbonne, Upper Ouachita, Handy Brake, Black Bayou Lake, and Red River National Wildlife Refuges.

Bedford says in an agency news release Thursday that he grew up working on his family’s farm and hunting and fishing the hills of Lincoln Parish.

His 17 years with the agency include three years in the Atlanta regional office and two as project leader for the Gulf Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex in Mississippi and Alabama.

Before joining the Fish and Wildlife service he spent nine years with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s wildlife services.
