Slade National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Slade National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is located in south-central North Dakota within the Prairie Pothole Region of the glaciated plains. In an area famed for its wealth of waterfowl producing potholes, the Refuge also provides excellent habitat for nesting grassland birds. Slade NWR received its name from a Northern Pacific Railroad executive G.T. Slade. Slade donated the property to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1941.

Slade NWR is an unstaffed refuge and is currently administered by the Long Lake NWR Complex. Visitation to Slade NWR is limited because there are no facilities or staff available on the site.

Directions:

Slade NWR is located approximately 2 miles south of Dawson, North Dakota. From I-94, travel south on Highway 3 for 3 miles, then turn east on the gravel road and continue ý mile to the Refuge gate. A recreational area managed by the Kidder County Park Board lies just south of the entrance gate to the Refuge.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
