  History
Continued . . .

An Executive Order, dated September 4, 1935, established the Refuge as Lower Souris NWR. This Refuge was set apart as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife. Lower Souris NWR was officially renamed J. Clark Salyer NWR in September 1967 in honor of J. Clark Salyer II, the chief of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Division of Wildlife Refuges from 1934 until 1961.
