Lac Qui Parle Wildlife Management Area
Lac Qui Parle Wildlife Management Area is a 24,000-acre area, located north and west of Lac Qui Parle State Park. An attractive headquarters building houses a small museum and a staffed information center. Bird watchers and nature observers visit the area each year to enjoy the native prairie grasses and flowers. In addition, the abundance of song birds and waterfowl which use the Wildlife Management Area for a nesting and migratory stopover make it a hot spot. The combination of wetland, brush, woods and native prairie provides ample cover for hundreds of birds and small game. Abundant wildlife can be seen almost anytime of the year. Marsh Lake contains the largest white pelican colony in North America and the WMA offers excellent viewing for numerous wetland and grassland dependent wildlife species.
