McAdams Wildlife Area

McAdams Wildlife Area

The McAdams Wildlife Area is a 21-acre property located in northern St. Croix County. The property was purchased in 1974 to protect a pothole wetland for waterfowl production. The property consists of a large pothole wetland (14 acres) and some associated upland restored to prairie (7 acres), providing crucial habitat for waterfowl. The property is managed as part of the Western Prairie Habitat Restoration Area, a landscape scale wetland and grassland restoration project.

The property is located on the east side of New Richmond. Follow County Highway K east out of New Richmond for 2 miles, and then turn south of 170th St for ¾ of a mile. The property is located on the west side of 170th St.

Management

The property is managed to provide opportunities for public hunting, trapping, wildlife observation and other nature-based outdoor recreation. Management objectives aim to maintain the open pothole wetland. Populations of invasive species are controlled or eliminated by cutting, pulling, burning, herbicide treatment and/or biocontrol.
