Lambs Creek Wildlife Area

Lambs Creek Wildlife Area

Lambs Creek Wildlife Area is a 750-acre property located approximately 5 miles north of Menomonie or 3 miles south of Wheeler. This property lies between County Highway. F on the west and State Highway 25 on the east. It is bounded by 865th Ave. and 810th Ave. on the north and south. A small parking lot is available for public access on the north side of 810th Ave. Roadside access is available at other locations and may require permission from neighboring landowners.

Lambs Creek flows through this property from west to east for roughly 2.25 miles making it and the associated marsh the predominant feature on the wildlife area. Moving away from the creek bottom, you will find central hardwood forest.


Acquisition of lands for the Lambs Creek Wildlife Area began between 1960 and 1965 when several parcels were acquired. Between 1973 and 1980, several additional lands were acquired. The most recent acquisition came in 2002. The purpose was to protect and provide public access to Lambs Creek and the associated wetland complex as well as provide upland wildlife habitat adjacent to the creek and wetland

Historically, the management objective was to protect the waters of Lambs Creek and provide wildlife habitat for species that utilize wetlands and woods. These same objectives remain true today.

The property is monitored for invasive species. Primary management on this property involves management of the woodlands. Use of forest management and timber sales help maintain a healthy, vigorous woodland for wildlife.
