Litchfield Wetland Management District provides a number of great opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The tallgrass prairies and wetlands host a diversity of plant and animal species and make for some great wildlife observation areas as well as other recreational activities. Some of these activities include hunting, fishing, environmental education, and photography.
Litchfield Wetland Management District manages four Northern Tallgrass Prairie National Wildlife Refuge tracts. These tracts are not visible on our website map. Use the link below to see the Northern Tallgrass Prairie National Wildlife Refuge map.
Currently, our maps are under construction and we are working on improving the accuracy of our content. If you have any questions please contact us. Thank you for your patience!
