Wildlife and Fisheries Commission to Meet Thursday, February 3

09:30 am - 11:30 am @

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission will meet at 9:30 a.m., Thursday, February 3, at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries headquarters, located at 2000 Quail Drive in Baton Rouge.

Due to the public health emergency guidelines established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 40 members of the public will be allowed in the meeting room at one time. All members of the public will have to wear a mask to enter the building.

However, in an effort to allow more public access to the meeting, the Commission asks those persons attending for a single agenda item to leave after that item is heard. This will allow other members of the public to rotate into the room.
