Fireworks illegal on all FWP lands

By | June 28, 2013

‘Tis the season to celebrate America’s Fourth of July birthday bash, especially with fireworks. But it’s important to remember fireworks are illegal on all Fish, Wildlife and Parks lands. Every year around the Fourth of July, people buy fireworks, then look for a place out of town to shoot them off. The local fishing access site, state park or wildlife management area presents an inviting spot.

Don’t do it. FWP properties are off limits to fireworks. Anyone using fireworks on FWP lands may be charged with a misdemeanor that can result in a fine of up to $500. So have fun on July Fourth. Visit a fishing access site or wildlife management area. Just leave the fireworks at home.
