North Dakota's Game and Fish Department is reminding residents that possession and use of fireworks is banned on state wildlife management areas.
Officials say Fourth of July fireworks displays aren't compatible with the objectives of the areas — enhancing wildlife production, providing hunting and fishing opportunities, and offering other outdoor recreational and educational opportunities.
Game and Fish also is lifting the no-camping restriction on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday week. That means overnight camping will be allowed July 2-3 on the wildlife management areas where the restriction normally would be in place.
Game and Fish also is reminding outdoors enthusiasts to put their garbage in trash receptacles or take it home with them when they use public areas including wildlife management areas.
Littering violations can be reported by calling the Report All Poachers hotline at 701-328-9921.
