The public is invited to the dedication of the new 1,293-acre Marion County Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and State Forest at 6 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, Sept. 16. The ceremony is being held at the WMA parking lot, located southeast of Lebanon off Siloam Road.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, the Kentucky Division of Forestry and the Marion County Fiscal Court — co-owners of the property — will recognize the partners and acknowledge the funding sources that made the new WMA possible.
