|Lostwood National Wildlife Refuge is an ocean of grasslands with wetlands scattered throughout the landscape.|
Continued . . . Wildflowers tint the sea of green with a rainbow of colors from spring through fall. Native plant species in the mixed-grass community include western snowberry, needle grasses, wheat grasses, blue grama, and plains muhly. Still, grassland communities are very dynamic; they fluctuate in response to climate, soils, and a variety of disturbances.
Though the 2,000 potholes scattered throughout the Refuge are not good fish habitat, they provide excellent nesting and brood-rearing habitat for waterfowl and other water birds. This region is known as the "duck factory" of world. Nowhere else are habitat conditions so conducive for waterfowl production.
