Sedan Bottoms

Sedan Bottoms Wildlife Management Area is a sanctuary for many types of animals, plants and insects. Located in Southern Iowa, the property was declared a Se. Though the property has rich tree and woodland habitats for the birds, it is juxtaposed with the Chariton River and rolling hills of the Iowa Drift Plain. Here we can find Cattails, wetlands, Indiangrass and much more. In the sunny spots, one can find various milkweed bugs, butterflies and dragonflies. The impressive species variety of insects is growing every day.

REAP funding for this project: $224,200
