General Information

Description - Waterfowl Production Areas are managed for optimum waterfowl production using techniques such as upland cover, water and seasonal predator management.

The WMD lies within the transitional zone between the flat glacial Red River Valley lake bottom to the west and the timbered areas to the east. Within the transitional zone lie glacial moraines that contain many wetlands. These wetlands range from small ephemeral basins to large lakes. The woodlands to the east gradually start as oak savannah phasing into oak-ash communities on the higher sites with willow-tamarack shrub swamps of the lower sites.

Major rivers within the WMD include the Red River of the North, Otter Tail, Pelican, Mustinka and Rabbit which flow west of the continental divide into the Hudson Bay drainage and the Chippewa, Pomme de Terre, Long Prairie, Wing and Redeye Rivers which flow east into the Mississippi drainage. This area is rich in buffalo rings, Indian mounds, flintstones and arrowheads due to frequent clashes between the Ojibway and Sioux Indians.

Location - The Fergus Falls Wetland Management District encompasses Otter Tail, Grant, Douglas, Wilkin and Wadena Counties in west central Minnesota.
