Information about Wayne E Kirch WMA
The Wayne E. Kirch WMA is located in the White River Valley in northeastern Nye County. State Route 318 is the major access route to the area. Today, KWMA is composed of a total of 14,815 acres, including five major reservoirs.
From sagebrush to wet meadows and grasslands, the various habitats of KWMA support an abundance of fish and wildlife that contribute significantly to the biological diversity of central Nevada. Wetlands are among the most productive wildlife habitats in Nevada. They provide food, cover, and water for numerous species of birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Tule, Adams-McGill, Cold Springs, Dacey and Haymeadow reservoirs, developed by NDOW, provide deep water habitat for fish and diving ducks. The edges of the reservoirs provide feeding areas for puddle ducks and shorebirds. The White River bisects the area and provides wetlands and deep water habitats. Uplands on KWMA include sagebrush, alkali desert scrub, annual grassland and desert wash. Sagebrush provides important habitat for mule deer, pronghorn, sage grouse and nongame species. The desert wash habitat is found in narrow corridors around intermittent streams carrying runoff from the Egan Range into the White River Valley.
