Long Lake National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Long Lake National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), located in south-central North Dakota, was established in 1932 as a migratory bird refuge by President Herbert Hoover. The 22,300 acre refuge consists of a 15,000-acre saline basin that is 18 miles long and is appropriately named "Long Lake." Long Lake is relatively shallow; it is normally 3 to 4 feet deep. During extended wet periods, Long Lake reaches depths up to seven feet.

The shallow depths and lengths of meandering shoreline provide vast expanses of habitat that attract migrating and nesting species of waterfowl, shorebirds, and rare migrant birds. In recognition of the Refuge's significance in the ongoing effort to conserve wild birds and their habitat, Long Lake was designated as a "Globally Important Bird Area" in 2001. Also, due to the special importance of Long Lake NWR to migrating shorebirds, the Refuge was recently recognized as a "Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network" site.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
