Portions of the Deal Island WMA that was closed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resouces last month because of the illegal distribution of waterfowl bait will reopen Wednesday.
Small grains discovered in a marshy dump area west of Riley Roberts Road and south of State Route 363 near Chance forced the temporary closure. The grains could have attracted wild waterfowl, according to the DNR. The signs announcing the closure, posted at known access points to the marsh area, will be removed prior to the reopening.
Those seeking more information on this temporary closure should call the Wellington Wildlife Management Area office at 410-543-8223, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
