Located in Le Sueur County between Gorman Lake and Lake Olney, Factor State Wildlife Management Area (WMA) provides rich habitat for waterfowl, deer, pheasant and turkeys. The Trust for Public Land acquired and conveyed 53 acres to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to enlarge the WMA.

The addition provides vital public access to previously inaccessible wetland and upland grassland habitat—land now available for quality hunting within an hour’s drive of the Twin Cities.

Funding for this project was provided by the Outdoor Heritage Fund as recommended by the Lessard- Sams Outdoor Heritage Council.
