Education Programs

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 such as snowshoeing, winter survival animal style, and animal tracks. Programs are available at both J. Clark Salyer NWR and Upper Souris NWR. 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 availability for regular school and community groups too!
