DNR Expands Nanjemoy Natural Resource Management Area
Nanjemoy, Md. (May 4, 2012) — The Nanejemoy Natural Resource Management Area (NRMA) is now 265 acres larger and will provide even more opportunities for hunters and sportsmen. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has added the Liverpool Tract to the NRMA and the new area is open to hunting. DNR acquired the property located in the south western portion of Charles County in 2010.
“This new tract is a great addition to Nanjemoy NRMA,” said Wildlife & Heritage Service Southern Region Manager Dave Heilmeier. “The area’s diversity of woodlands, wetlands, and tidal marsh will provide numerous opportunities to hunt upland and forest game, migratory game birds, waterfowl and deer.”
The Liverpool Tract of Nanjemoy NRMA is open to regulated hunting for all game species in accordance with established season dates and bag limits. Hunters and trappers can find those regulations in the 2011-2012 Guide to Hunting and Trapping in Maryland. Waterfowl hunting and trapping on the Liverpool Tract of Nanjemoy NRMA is by permit only.
Hunter access to Nanjemoy NRMA will require possession of a seasonal permit and daily reservations are required for waterfowl blind sites. Hunters must park in designated parking areas only.
Additional information about the Liverpool Tract and Nanjemoy NRMA is available from the Myrtle Grove WMA office at 301-743-5161.
