A series of public meetings to discuss the state's system of wildlife management areas will be held through the end of February, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has announced.

The meetings, which will showcase regional WMA harvest data, habitat work, infrastructure improvements and information about the agency, are being held across the state and hosted by MDWFP.

All WMA users, adjacent landowners, hunting clubs, and concerned citizens are invited to attend.
