Assumption wildlife refuge reopens after Isaac
Elm Hall, a state wildlife refuge about 5 miles west of Napoleonville in Assumption Parish, opens again after it was closed because of Hurricane Isaac.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says the refuge was reopened to the public on Wednesday.
Elm Hall is a 2,839-acre area that is accessible only by boat. The refuge sits on the northeast corner of Lake Verret.
Meanwhile Elmer's Island, a public beach facing the Gulf of Mexico in Jefferson Parish, remains closed after Isaac's surge exposed buried tar mats.
