MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is suspending operations nationwide due to the federal government shutdown.

For Minnesota, that means 13 national wildlife refuges, eight wetland management districts, one ecological services office and the Midwest Regional Office are closed. The closures affect more than 489,000 acres of land in Minnesota.

Activities such as hunting, fishing, environmental education or public events scheduled at any of these facilities are cancelled.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials are asking the public to delay plans to visit these areas until facilities are reopened.
