- Long Lake Wetland Management District is managed to provide high quality wetlands and nesting cover for waterfowl, other migratory bird species, and native resident wildlife. Management activities are used to rejuvenate native and tame upland habitats include grazing systems, burning, haying, and seeding of dense nesting cover.
The topography of the WMD varies from the hilly pothole country to the east, known as the Missouri Coteau, to the relatively flat land of the Missouri River Slope to the west. Approximately 68% of the land in the three county area remains in native grassland and the dominant land use is cattle grazing.
Most Waterfowl Production Areas in the District are open to the public for activities including hunting, hiking, bird watching, and trapping.
