Benton Lake Wetland Management District


Benton Lake Wetland Management District (WMD) covers the largest geographical area of any District in the United States. District staff actively manage waterfowl production areas (WPA) and administer an active conservation easement program. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) Partners for Fish and Wildlife program is very active in the District on projects to restore wetlands and improve grazing practices on native grasslands. Stream restoration and riparian management are also priorities of the Partners program.


Since the WMD encompasses ten counties, driving directions to specific WPAs are available by contacting the Refuge staff (406-727-7400).

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
