The temperatures have been warming up and the snow is starting to melt, which means the roads are a muddy mess. We advise visitors to call before making a trip out to drive the Auto Routes to get an update on road conditions. Roads will most likely not be suitable for driving for several more weeks.

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!
