General Information

Description - The Windom Wetland Management District acquires and manages waterfowl production areas, enforces wetland easements and provides conservation assistance to landowners in 12 southwestern Minnesota counties.

The landscape is dominated by intense, row crop agriculture which has lead to the drainage of most wetlands and widespread water quality problems. Deteriorating tile systems and the abundance of historic basins provide unlimited opportunities for wetland restorations.

Heron Lake, was once known as the "Chesapeake Bay of the Midwest" because of its tremendous canvasback migrations. This 6,400 acre shallow prairie lake suffers from hypereutrophication, rough fish and loss of aquatic vegetation, symptoms typical to area lakes. Heron Lake is the focus of a multi-partner effort to restore the lake and its 474 square mile watershed.
