Agreement could improve duck habitat in Kandiyohi Co., Minn.


WILLMAR -- A plan to drain a small wetland could help improve habitat for ducks in the northern part of Kandiyohi County.

Water in the 35-acre wetland basin in the Henjum Waterfowl Production Area, located in Arctander Township, has become too high, green and scummy, according to Steve Erickson with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Fathead minnows have invaded the lake, which has affected vegetation and reduced its appeal to waterfowl.
