General Information

Description - The Huron Wetland Management District (WMD) lies within the prairie pothole region of the United States in east central South Dakota. Headquartered in Huron, South Dakota, the WMD manages Waterfowl Production Areas (WPA's), and administers wetland, grassland and conservation perpetual easements.

The WPA's within the WMD offer diverse habitat that can be protected and managed to attract and produce migratory waterfowl, migratory non-game birds, and resident wildlife. The wetlands found in this area vary in size, permanence and wildlife they benefit. The uplands are primarily grasslands.

The mixture of upland cover and wetland diversity creates any area that provides for the needs of many wildlife species. The WPA's provide wetlands and habitat necessary for waterfowl feeding and spring nesting. During migration , hundreds of thousands of waterfowl use the marshes for feeding and resting during their long flights.

The WPA's are managed with a variety of management tools including periodic rest, prescribed burning, grazing, haying, inter seeding, grass reestablishment, wetland enhancement, restoration and construction.

Location - The Huron Wetland Management District is located in east central South Dakota and is headquartered in Huron.
