•Wealthwood State Forest is located at the north end of Mille Lacs Lake. This 15,000 acres of rolling hills has numerous lakes, rivers, and wetlands that attract waterfowl such as mallards, ring-necked ducks, and Canada geese.

Ripple River WMA is within the forest and is home to sandhill cranes, woodcock, sharp-tailed grouse, short-eared owls, snowshoe hares, brown creepers, chorus frogs, and four-toed salamanders.

Notes:

The Ripple River Wildlife Management Area (WMA) covers nearly half of the forest. DNR forest and wildlife managers work closely together so management activities benefit both wildlife and plant species.
