GRAND CHENIER, La. (AP) - The Joseph Harbor boat launch at Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge in Grand Chenier will be closed from Wednesday through April 17 while crews work to extend each ramp at the launch.
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries officials say the modifications will allow boaters to launch in low-tide conditions.
The East End Locks boat launch, accessible off Louisiana Highway 82, will remain open for recreational boating on the eastern portion of the refuge. The Rockefeller refuge is in Cameron and Vermilion parishes in southwest Louisiana.
