The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is a dynamic art- and science-based curriculum that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program encourages students to explore their natural world, invites them to investigate biology and wildlife management principles and challenges them to express and share what they have learned with others. Entries are due March 15, 2017.North Dakota Junior Duck Stamp Facebook Page

Out and About on the Refuge
The Souris River Basin NWR Complex is looking to expand our Environmental Education offerings this winter to homeschools. We have great hands on winter activities that range from snowshoeing to winter survival animal style and animals tracks. Programs are available both at J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge and Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge. Most activities can be tailored to fit content standards and learning objectives. Contact the Refuge Ranger at 701-768-2548 ext. 125 for more information.
P.S. We also have plenty availability for regular school and community groups too!

The winter snowfall and wind have made the Scenic Trail Auto tour route impassible. Unfortunately, due to the low moisture content and lightness of the snow, it is impossible to keep clear. We will post an update when weather conditions improve and staff can keep the road open.
25 species of ducks use the Refuge habitat, including 4 species that are rare visitors and 16 species that breed here.
