Fergus Falls Wetland Management District


The Fergus Falls Wetland Management District was established in 1962 with the initiation of the Accelerated Small Wetlands Acquisition Program. It includes the counties of Douglas, Grant, Otter Tail, Wadena and Wilkin. The mission of the district is to identify, protect, and restore the tallgrass prairie/wetland ecosystem and associated habitats and to provide opportunities for outdoor recreation and environmental education. For this purpose, the district currently manages 215 waterfowl production areas (WPAs) totaling 43,962 acres, and 1,101 acres of perpetual easements protecting 21,909 acres of wetlands on private land. Forty-six perpetual wildlife habitat easements covering 3,350 acres of native and non-native habitats on private land have also been obtained.


Take I-94 to State Highway 210 East (Exit 57) and travel east one mile to the Prairie Wetlands Learning and three miles to the headquarters.

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.
