The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has reopened the south entrance to the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Palm Beach County.

The entrance road had been temporary rerouted in September to allow public access to the WMA while a section of Seminole Pratt-Whitney Road from 100th Lane North to the south entrance of Corbett was closed.

Also, all internal roads within the WMA were reopened earlier in the month.

For updated closure and reopening information, visit and click on “Open/Closed Status of FWC Offices and FWC-managed Areas.”  If you have additional questions, please call the FWC’s South Regional Office at 561-625-5122.

To report a violation of any fish and wildlife law violation, call the FWC’s Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922.

One 24-inch female red snapper can produce as many eggs as 212 17-inch females.
