In The Community

The Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge sits among many small to medium size North Dakota communities.  The nearest towns are Kensal to the northeast and Pingree to the southwest of the Headquarters site.  Other nearby towns include Courtney, Buchanan, Bordulac, Carrington and Jamestown.  Staff live in most of these nearby communities and are often involved in community affairs with schools, churches, and other organizations.   The larger communities of Carrington and Jamestown are involved with sponsorships of the Friends of Arrowwood by the Carrington and Jamestown Chambers of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureaus and Tourism Boards.
