The Walton Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) was purchased in 2012 using Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp dollars. The stamp, commonly known as the “Duck Stamp” is what waterfowl hunters are required to have in their possession while hunting. This property provides nesting habitat for a variety of waterfowl, grassland birds and other wildlife. This property also helps reduce erosion, clean and protect ground water and reduce flooding. The Walton WPA provides public access for wildlife-dependent recreation such as hunting, wildlife watching and photography.
