The Necedah National Wildlife Refuge is closed as current funding expired on Oct. 1, according to a news release from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is aware that any lapse in appropriations imposes hardships on those it serves, the release said. While the lapse in appropriations remains in effect, public access to service properties will be prohibited. All fish and wildlife management activities and public programs will be cancelled.

Only limited functions will continue, such as those necessary to respond to emergencies, perform essential functions and to protect human life or personal property.
