General Information

Description - The area was entirely glaciated and is part of the prairie pothole region. The WMD lies in the transition zone between the mixed and short grass prairie.


Over 80% of Montana's Threatened piping plovers nest adjacent to alkali lakes in the WMD. Waterfowl production rates are among the highest in the prairie pothole region.


Privately owned wetland acres are protected from drainage, burning, leveling and filling by perpetual wetland easements. Perpetual grassland easements are also being acquired throughout the district which prohibits the landowner from "breaking" the native prairie.


The WMD has an active 'Partners for Wildlife' program which encourages landowners to implement wildlife habitat projects compatible with their farming and ranching operations.

Location - The Medicine Lake Wetland Management District (WMD)is located in the extreme northeastern corner of Montana.
