Current development and management objectives for the area are to provide habitat for a variety of resident and migratory species and to permit compatible wildlife related recreational use. A shallow water impoundment was created to attract waterfowl. An annual system of grassland mowing is done to keep open fields from reverting to brush and trees. These activities are carried out with monies derived mainly from hunting license fees and federal taxes on sporting arms and ammunition.
The primary management objective of this WMA is to maintain quality wetland habitat for waterfowl. Large numbers of waterfowl, shorebirds and wading birds have been documented on the area during breeding or migration.
Habitat management activities include wetland and grassland maintenance.
The diverse habitat on the area is home to a variety of wildlife species. Some of the more common species are beaver, cottontail rabbit, gray and red fox, gray squirrel, mink, muskrat, opossum, raccoon, ruffed grouse, turkey, white-tailed deer, woodcock and a variety of song birds and waterfowl.
For hunters, there is a variety of game available. Deer, wild turkey, grey squirrels, raccoons and ruffed grouse are the primary species. Small marsh pond units provide limited hunting for waterfowl. Fishermen can find Bass, Bullheads, and Panfish in the two man made ponds.
Many hiking trails provide access for hiking, cross country skiing, and bird study. Extensive shrub plantings attract a wide variety of songbirds.
