General Information

Description - The Devils Lake Wetland Management District is located in northeastern North Dakota within the famed Prairie Pothole region. This heavily glaciated zone has a variety of glacial land forms, among the most important of which are the various shallow wetlands and prairie lakes.

The District primarily provides wetland areas needed by waterfowl and other migratory shorebirds in the spring and summer for nesting and feeding. The grasslands provide upland nesting sites for resident and neotropical migratory bird species. Mallard, gadwall, and blue-winged teal are the most abundant ducks, with several other species of diving and dabbling ducks common to the area. Giant Canada geese have been reintroduced and efforts are underway to expand the range of this historically important species.

Spectacular concentrations of waterfowl and other migratory birds gather in the District each spring and fall, including snow geese, whose vast numbers are a magnificent sight. Threatened and endangered species that inhabit the area include the threatened piping plover and the endangered bald eagle and peregrine falcon.
