Monthly Report (April): Lower Souris Migratory Waterfowl Refuge

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

The Lower Souris Migratory Waterfowl Refuge (now known as the J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge) is located just south of the Canadian border in North Dakota. The refuge was established and constructed by the CCC in 1935 to restore waterfowl habitat. This report gives an overview of events taking place on the refuge in April of 1938. A cold snap hit the refuge early in the month. Waterfowl were fed several barrels of grain daily. Water levels and precipitation are still low. Promised water released from the Upper Souris was never received due to the powers that control the Eaton project. Large numbers of nesting have occurring, even in the goose pen. Food crop planting took place, with over 107 acres planted with Duram Wheat and Sweet Clover. A share-cropping program has been approved to try out. This program will reduce the work load of the refuge staff. Predator control operations have almost been discontinued during the month of April. Projects on the nursery, fencing, truck trails and building rising continued. A photographs section concludes this document.
