Plan Your Visit

American Bittern 512 x 300

The rolling hills and scattered wetlands, known as the coteau, were formed from debris "bulldozed" by the last glaciers to visit North Dakota some 11,000 years ago.

Getting there...

The Lostwood Wetland Management District headquarters is located 21 miles north of Stanley, North Dakota, along State Highway 8. A large entrance sign can be seen just off the highway on the west side of the road. The head quarters station is also home to the Lostwood National Wildlife Refuge.

Visitor Information: 

The headquarters has a kiosk where you can start your visit by picking up brochures and wildlife checklists. Accessible rest rooms are available year-round inside the entryway of the office.

The office and visitor kiosk is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 4:30 pm year-round, except Federal holidays.
