No glass containers, new camper rules on Mississippi beaches after Memorial Day
Boaters and campers on the Mississippi River will have new federal rules to deal with after Memorial Day.
They're part of a master plan to conserve the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, which includes all of the Wisconsin shore.
Starting May 27, all glass containers will be banned on beaches and other refuge property.
Campsites must be at least 200 feet away from trails, boat landings, roads, and parking lots.
