The wetland and grassland habitat on WPAs attracts and enhances production by ducks and other migratory birds. By providing permanent secure habitat, these critical areas help to sustain North America's waterfowl and migratory bird populations. Holsten Slough WPA, the first waterfowl production area in the District, was purchased on October, 31, 1962.

Wetland easements are also purchased from private landowners using Federal Duck Stamp dollars. On wetland easements, a signed contract protects the wetlands in perpetuity, but the land is still privately owned. The first wetland easement in the District was purchased in McHenry County (655 acres) on January 16, 1963.
