Earl Swain WMA

County: Le Sueur
Nearest Town: Elysian
Area: 107 ac

Directions: From Elysian, go 2 miles N on CSAH 11.

Description: Swain WMA contains a restored cattail marsh, grass covered hills, and a remnant of the Big Woods.

Water levels in the marsh are managed to benefit waterfowl and wetland wildlife. Several fields have been planted to prairie grasses and wildflowers.

At this scale, these WMA boundaries are general, and do not accurately represent the actual legal boundaries. WMA users still need to verify public lands boundaries by observing boundary signs and contacting local DNR Wildlife offices.
