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).
