Litchfield Wetland Management District is located on the eastern edge of the Prairie Pothole Region in central Minnesota. Here, just a little south of the famous mythological Lake Wobegone where "all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average," more than 33,000 acres of Service-owned land and 8,000 acres of wetland easements provide outstanding marsh, prairie, transition, and woodland habitats. District lands are located on over 150 waterfowl production areas (WPAs) scattered throughout seven counties. These WPAs vary greatly in size and vegetation and provide habitat for numerous plant and animal species. Thirty-five Federally endangered, threatened, or special concern species and one hundred thirty-six State-listed species, including the bald eagle, trumpeter swan, Cerulean warbler, Henslow's sparrow, and Dakota skipper utilize district habitats.
