The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has rescinded an executive order issued in November that established special restrictions to portions of the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area.

The order, which takes effect immediately, once again permits normal public access to the Water Conservation Area 3A North portion of the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area. This area lies in Broward County.

Regulations specific to the wildlife management areas can be viewed at MyFWC.com/Hunting.
