Section 1: Overview

Originator:Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)

Title: Designated Wildlife Lakes

Abstract: This resource contains two feature classes: a polygon feature class of Designated Wildlife Lakes in Minnesota, and a point feature class with the polygons converted to points. Lakes were selected out from the DNR 100k Lakes and Rivers shapefile.

Purpose: To provide a spatial representation of formally designated wildlife lakes by the DNR Commissioner, as set forth by Minnesota Statutes 97A.101 subdivision 2. This designation allows the DNR to temporarily lower lake levels periodically to improve wildlife habitat and regulate motorized watercraft and recreational vehicles on the lake.
