Quietly Beautiful - Wildly Connected

Chippewa County

Natural resource options abound in Chippewa County, whose entire western edge is the Minnesota River. In addition to the many recreational parks, the county offers three wildlife management areas, including the well known Lac qui Parle Wildlife Management Area (WMA), stretching along both sides of the southern shores of Lac qui Parle Lake. The WMA is a goose hunting and wildlife paradise. Anyone who enjoys abundant wildlife will take pleasure in hiking through the WMA. Thousands of birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts hike and bike the area every year.

Birdwatchers enjoy the many songbirds and waterfowl, as the WMA is a nesting and migratory stopover. The sight of whitetail deer, prairie chickens, or ducks at dawn will delight almost any time of year. Bald eagles have even taken up residence in this majestic area.
