Abstract: 

The Detroit Lakes Wetland Management District is one of five wetland districts managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in western Minnesota. The Detroit Lakes Wetland Management District manages hundreds of federally owned Waterfowl Productions Areas (WPAs) in Becker, Clay, Mahnomen, Norman and Polk Counties. These "jewels on the prairie" are part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, a system of lands where wildlife comes first. It's not just wildlife that love Waterfowl Production Areas, these lands are open to certain types of wildlife dependent recreation. If you are able to visit a WPA, we hope you will enjoy your time spent on these unique lands developing a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Northern Tallgrass Prairie ecosystem.
