Whispering Wings

This recent addition to the Webster County Conservation Board is a natural pothole that has been re-established with the help of the NRCS. Currently there are about 1.5 acres of open water. The remainder of the area consists of about 15 acres of high quality restored prairie and a 1-acre windbreak along the north end. The area provides many of the basic necessities for the life cycles of many types of wildlife. The primary focus is on upland bird and waterfowl production. The area is open to public hunting with the exception of the 200 yard "no shooting zone" around the neighboring house. There is a parking lot in the southeast corner of the property.


Whispering Wings Marsh is located 1 1/4 miles east of Fort Dodge on old Highway 20.
