School groups and others use waterfowl production areas for environmental education programs. Each year, over 100 second graders from various school districts spend a special day at the headquarters site near Morris.

Fishing
All waterfowl production area wetlands are open to fishing in accordance with state regulations, but most are too shallow to support fish populations. Consult the staff for tips on areas with gamefish populations.
