|The Minnesota Valley Wetland Management District protects habitat for nesting ducks and other wildlife.|
Continued . . . Currently, the predominant use is agriculture and urban development in that portion of the district that lies in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. District staff works to restore wetland habitat on WPAs in the district.
The major breeding species of waterfowl in the district are mallards, blue-winged teal, and wood ducks. Breeding by redheads, ruddy ducks, canvasbacks, hooded mergansers, and gadwalls has also been confirmed.
Although waterfowl is a primary management concern, a myriad of other bird, mammal, reptile, amphibian and insect species are benefitted by the district's restoration and protection activities.
