      What We Do

      Michigan Wetland Management District is made up of five separate waterfowl production areas which consist of restored grassland and wetland habitats. To restore the diversity of habitat found on the areas, we use a variety of techniques including prescribed fire, planting native plants and people management. These tools allow us restore habitats for waterfowl and other wildlife.
