Cibola Valley Wildlife Area Partly Closed

August 15, 2012

PARKER, Arizona The Arizona Game and Fish Department is placing a temporary closure on portions of the Cibola Valley Conservation and Wildlife Area from August 17 to September 30, 2012.

The temporary closure is for the protection of nesting western yellow-billed cuckoos currently listed as wildlife of special concern in Arizona by the Department and a candidate species for listing as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.

This temporary closure is not anticipated to have any significant adverse impacts on dove hunting opportunities within the wildlife area and Cibola Valley.

If you have questions regarding the closure areas please contact the Arizona Game and Fish Department Region IV offices, located in Yuma, at 928-342-0091.
