Dakota Prairie National Grasslands

Description:

Stretching over 1,259,000 acres, the Dakota Prairie National Grasslands offer visitors the opportunity to view elk, antelope, whitetail and mule deer, bighorn sheep, coyotes, sharptail grouse, pheasants, wild turkeys, eagles, falcons, and the busy prairie dogs. Recreational opportunities include hiking, camping, horseback riding, photography, canoeing, fishing, hunting, and backpacking.The National Grasslands are not solid blocks of National Forest System lands; rather, they are intermingled with other federal, state, and privately owned lands. This mixed ownership pattern contributes to the uniqueness of the National Grasslands.Each of the National Grasslands has a flavor all its own. The tallgrass prairie on the rolling hills of the Sheyenne National Grasslands are a significant contrast to the stark badlands found in the Little Missouri National Grasslands. The resources are as varied also; paleontological and archeological digs, oil and gas production, cattle grazing, and recreation.As a visitor to the Dakota Prairie National Grasslands, you are asked to follow certain rules designed to protect the Grasslands and the natural environment, to ensure the health and safety of visitors, and to promote pleasant and rewarding outdoor recreation experiences for all visitors. Forest Officers are empowered to enforce the Federal Regulations which the rules listed here are taken from. Please take time to read and understand the federal regulations for visiting grasslands.

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.
