- The Morris Wetland Management District is dotted with thousands of small wetlands or "prairie potholes" created by glaciers many years ago. Prior to settlement, this area was a paradise for waterfowl, prairie chickens, whooping cranes, bison, wolves, and other prairie wildlife. The area remains a critical waterfowl production and migration area.
Native prairie remnants from 1 to 560 acres may be found on waterfowl production areas within the District.
Mallard, blue-winged teal and woodduck are the primary waterfowl species. A variety of neotropical songbirds may be found within the District too.
