Description of the area

Munuscong State Wildlife Management Area in Chippewa County is over 14,200 acres in size. A diverse wildlife area, Munuscong has grasslands, marshes, potholes (very small ponds/lakes created by glaciers), and forested habitat. This diversity of habitat lends itself well to a diversity of wildlife species. LeConte’s sparrows and sharp-tailed grouse can be found nesting in the grasslands. Mallards, herons, wood ducks and mergansers nest in the marshes and adjacent forests. Many mammal species also call Munuscong home; deer, beaver, muskrat, mink and more!
