    Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs) offer diverse habitats that attract and produce a variety of migratory and resident wildlife. Wetlands vary in size, shape, and permanence, and thus provide benefits to wildlife all year.

  • Grasslands

    The Chase Lake WMD lies in the northern plains area known as the mixed-grass prairie. More than 13,000 acres of native prairie vegetation is protected on WPAs.

  • Pollinators

    Pollinators are nearly as important as sunlight, soil and water to the reproductive success of over 75% of the world's flowering plants. They are crucial to the production of most fruits, nuts and berries on which wildlife and people depend.
