For this reason, the Prairie Pothole Region is also known as the "duck factory" of North America.

There are approximately 1,354 acres of native prairie left within the 28 waterfowl production areas on the District. However, most of the grasslands on the WPAs are either tame grasses or have been re-seeded with native plants.

A wide variety of wildlife species inhabit the WPAs on the District, including a diversity of waterfowl species, upland game birds, nesting and migratory songbirds, birds of prey, deer, and numerous fur-bearers, including mink and muskrat.
