Eckhardt Lagoon Waterfowl Production Area

Habitat includes 65 acres of wetland and 109 acres of upland. Eckhardt WPA recently underwent a prescribed burn followed by disking the wetland and then grazing to reduce the dense stand of river bulrush and to keep vegetation short and in isolated pockets of the wetland. The wetland was pumped in the spring of 2000 and received tremendous use by pintails, mallards, white-fronted geese, and Canada geese in February and March. Near the end of March, snow geese began using the wetland as well. Located near Green Acres Waterfowl Production Area.
