Michigan Wetland Management District
The Michigan Wetland Managment District consists of two waterfowl production areas (WPAs): the 160-acre Schlee WPA in Jackson County and the 77-acre Kinney WPA in Van Buren County. Both sites are managed as a mixture of wetlands and grasslands to provide high-quality nesting and brood-rearing habitat for waterfowl and a variety of migratory songbirds. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Division, oversees day-to-day management of these areas through a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The Schlee WPA is located on the north side of Page Road approximately six miles east of US 127 on the east side of Jackson. The Kinney WPA is in southeast Van Buren County, approximately 3.5 miles south of Lawton, near the intersection of County Road 352 and 29th Street.www.hobogrill.org
