Michigan Wetland Management District

Description:

The Michigan Wetland Management District consists of a 14-county area and includes two waterfowl production areas (WPAs): the 160-acre Schlee WPA in Jackson County and the 77-acre Kinney WPA in Van Buren County. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Division, oversees day-to-day management of these two areas through a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Michigan has a third WPA, the 95-acre Schoonover WPA, in Lenawee County. Staff of the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, located east of Toledo, Ohio, manages this WPA. All three sites are managed as a mixture of wetlands and grasslands to provide high-quality nesting and brood-rearing habitat for waterfowl and a variety of migratory songbirds.

Directions:

The Kinney WPA is in southeast Van Buren County, approximately 3.5 miles south of Lawton, near the intersection of County Road 352 and 29th Street. The Schoonover WPA, in western Lenawee County, is located on Medina Road approximately three miles south of Hudson and eight miles east of US 127.
