Ground work project ready to start in Memphis WMA

Work is scheduled to begin the week of Oct. 17 on a project in the Memphis Wildlife Management Area in Saunders County. Area users should be aware that some activities may be interrupted during construction.

Ground work will begin to prepare the site for the construction of a new commercial complex. This store will serve as a field office for the Nebraska Game and Park Commission Division of Wildlife.

The WMA is located directly north of the Memphis State Recreation Area. Construction will take place north of County Road D. Construction traffic will use County Road D and the SRA will not be affected.

Users are reminded that target shooting is permanently prohibited in the area.
