- Litchfield Wetland Management District is located on the eastern edge of the Prairie Pothole Region in central Minnesota. Here, just a little south of the famous mythological Lake Wobegone where "all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average," over 30,000 acres of Service owned land and 8,000 acres of wetland easements provide outstanding marsh, prairie, transition, and woodland habitats.
District lands are located on over 130 Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs) scattered throughout 7 counties. These WPAs vary greatly in size and vegetation and provide homes or life cycle requirements for numerous plant and animal species. Twenty-eight Federally listed endangered, threatened, or special concern species and eighty-three State listed species including the bald eagle, trumpeter swan, Cerulean warbler, and Henslow's sparrow utilize District habitats.
