Huron Wetland Management District

Description:

The public lands of Huron Wetland Management District (WMD), called waterfowl production areas (WPAs), are a part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. National wildlife refuges and WPAs are vitally important to wildlife and people. These lands are managed to provide habitat for endangered species, migratory birds, and other wildlife and to provide places for people to learn about and enjoy wildlife.

WPAs are open to many public activities year-round. Visitors to WPAs can expect to find a rich variety of plant and animal life.

Directions:

The Huron WMD office is headquartered in Huron, South Dakota, which is located in the east-central portion of South Dakota. From I-90, follow Highway 37 north to Huron (approx. 50 miles). Highway 37 changes into Dakota Avenue once you are in the Huron city limits. Follow Dakota Avenue to Fourth Street SW and turn west. The District office is located in the Federal Building on the south side of the street. Please contact the District staff for directions to individual WPAs.
