  Recreation and Education Opportunities

Environmental Education
Environmental Education programs and sites for outdoor classrooms are available on an appointment basis only.

Fishing (including ice fishing) is available on approximately 12 WPAs, which have a semi-permanent or permanent water source. Perch, northern pike, and walleye are commonly sought by anglers. State fishing regulations and special Refuge regulations apply.

Hunting is available on WPAs in accordance with state hunting and trapping regulations and special Refuge regulations. Species commonly hunted include waterfowl, sharp-tail grouse, pheasants, and white-tailed deer.

Limited interpretive information is available at the District headquarters during normal office hours. Staff members are available to answer questions. Interpretative programs are available on an appointment basis only.

Wildlife Observation
Wildlife observation and photography opportunities are available year-round to visitors on WPAs. Because of the small size of many WPAs, observation and photography, can usually be done from the unit boundaries. Please respect grassland nesting birds and other wildlife, especially during the spring and summer months.

The Kulm District office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except on Federal holidays. WPAs are open to permitted activities year-round. Vehicles are not permitted on WPAs.

Entrance Fees
No entrance fees charged for access to WPAs.

Use Fees
The Wetland Management District does not charge user fees (i.e., hunt fees, camping fees, boat launch, meeting rooms rental fees, auto tour fees, guided tour fees, etc.).
