Shutdown Closes Wildlife Refuges
Because of the shutdown, more than 128,000 acres of wildlife refuges and other lands are off-limits in Illinois.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it's closed lands and facilities nationwide.
In Illinois, the agency has closed eight national wildlife refuges, as well as offices and facilities throughout the state.
At those locations, all recreational activities have been cancelled, including hunting, fishing, environmental education, and public events.
