The state Department of Environmental Conservation will open three restricted Wildlife Management Areas for 14 days starting Aug. 17.

The three areas, Perch River in Jefferson County and Upper and Lower Lakes and Wilson Hill in St. Lawrence County, are used by a number of the state’s endangered, threatened and rare species, including bald eagles, black terns and northern harriers.

By late August, the nesting and brooding season is mostly complete and the fall migration period has not yet begun, enabling DEC to allow public access.

This is the 18th year the department has opened the restricted area for public access. The availability will continue until Aug. 30.

For additional information, bird lists and maps, contact DEC’s Regional Wildlife Office at 785-2263 or visit the DEC web page at http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/8282.html
