About the District
Tamarac is one of eight wetland management districts within Minnesota. Located in North Central Minnesota where the pines meet the prairie, Tamarac Wetland Management District stretches over 10,600 square miles in Beltrami, Cass, Clearwater, Hubbard and Koochiching Counties.
The Tamarac district is responsible for administering a growing number of wetland conservation and Farmers Home Administration easements distributed throughout these five counties. There are currently 11,371 acres included in these conservation programs. In addition to easement enforcement and management activities, Tamarac District personnel also perform consultation roles for Farm Service Agency Farm Bill programs, restore grasslands and wetlands, establish young forest habitats and grazing projects on private lands, and render technical assistance to landowners who desire to enhance wildlife habitat on their property. As the Tamarac district aministers no land in fee title, the staff works directly with private landowners to restore, protect and enhance a diversity of wildlife.
The Tamarac Wetland Management District offices are located at Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge in Rochert, Minnesota. There are no visitor contact stations located within the district. The district is made up of private land partnerships and conservation easements so there are currently no opportunities for visitors.
