Freeman Lakes Waterfowl Production Area

Another good, but isolated, large basin. Access is difficult. The more productive portion is private, but can be viewed from the WPA area. This site contains 146 acres of wetland habitat and 42 acres of uplands. Management: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service owns only the eastern portion of the wetland. In 2001, the wetland basin was grazed, followed by disking. In 2002, the wetland was again grazed during the drought conditions. A remnant portion of an old two-track road and silt from the southwest portion of the wetland were removed from the wetland in 2002. More renovations are planned for the future.
