Kulm Wetland Management District

Description:

Located in south-central North Dakota, Kulm Wetland Management District (WMD) was established in 1971. Located in the Prairie Pothole Region of North America, Kulm WMD provides breeding, nesting, and brood rearing areas for many species of waterfowl and other migratory birds. The District currently manages 201 Waterfowl Production Areas (WPA) that total 45,683 acres, 3 national wildlife refuges, and 120,000 acres of wetland and grassland easements.

In many parts of Kulm WMD, the abundance of wetlands attracts waterfowl breeding pair densities of over 100 pairs per square mile. Native prairie is still well represented in the area and is home to many species of upland nesting birds. The James River meanders through the eastern portion of the District. As it leads south to the Missouri River, the James River forms a major migration corridor for numerous migrating birds.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
