About the Wetland Wonders

Michigan's Wetland Wonders are the seven premier Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas (MWHAs) in the state. These areas, scattered across the southern Lower Peninsula, were created in the 1960s to provide exceptional waterfowl hunting opportunities, and are still managed today to provide waterfowl habitat for nesting and migration and for the benefit of other wetland wildlife. Since the beginning, the areas have been funded by hunting license fees and area use fees, but they are open for anyone to visit, use and enjoy most of the year.

This application contains a complex map. Call 517-284-9453 or email dnr-wildlife@michigan.gov for assistance with reading or interpreting.
