As part of the DNR's Explore Michigan's Wetland Wonders campaign, Consumer's Energy and the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC) has partnered with the DNR to hold an annual contest for hunters; The Wetland Wonders Challenge contest.
Michigan's Wetland Wonders Challenge gives you the chance to hunt the ducks and geese that depend on the state's wetlands. This fall, we're inviting you to join us at Michigan's Wetland Wonders to experience the outstanding hunting opportunities available in Southern Michigan.
Michigan's Wetland Wonders are the seven premier managed waterfowl areas in the state:
- Allegan State Game Area's Fennville Farm Unit
- Fish Point
- Harsen's Island
- Muskegon County Wastewater Facility and Muskegon State Game Area
- Nayanquing Point
- Pointe Mouillee State Game Area
- Shiawassee River State Game Area
These areas offer superior opportunities to enjoy, appreciate and be inspired by Michigan's marshes and wetland wildlife. The Managed Waterfowl Areas are Michigan's Wetland Wonders. These areas, scattered across the southern Lower Peninsula, were created in the 1960s and 1970s to provide exceptional waterfowl hunting opportunities, and they're still managed today to provide waterfowl habitat for nesting and migration and for the benefit of other wetland wildlife. Since the beginning, these areas were funded by hunting license fees and fees from managed area use permits purchased by hunters, but they are open for anyone to visit, use and enjoy most of the year.
From October 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015, these sites will play host to the Wetland Wonders Challenge, where you can explore, hunt and win. To enter the challenge, just visit three of the official Wetland Wonders Challenge sites and fill out an entry form. Visit four or more official Wetland Wonders Challenge sites and receive a bonus entry into the contest for each site visited, giving you more chances to win! MUCC will draw seven winners on February 9, 2015 for seven ultimate prize packages.
We hope to see you soon at an event and enjoy everything Michigan's Wetland Wonders have to offer!
