LDWF opens new location in Lake Charles

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries officially opened its new office in Lake Charles, located at 1025 Tom Watson Rd. The new facility, which replaces an aging building near the city’s lakefront, is better located for public access and provides LDWF a better staging area for enforcement agents to prepare for rescues before and after weather and other emergencies in the state’s southwest region.

LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet called the new structure the result of partnerships with city leaders and Gov. John Bel Edwards. That cooperation also includes the Chennault International Airport Authority, which is hosting the LDWF facility at its airport.
