Monthly Report (October): Lower Souris Migratory Waterfowl Refuge

Metadata Updated: January 29, 2020

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 October of 1937. Like September, October also produced some exceptionally fine weather. The peak of duck migration took place on October 20 with 200,000 ducks, most of which were mallards. Projects this month included food and cover planting, seed collection, cover mapping, the raising and grading of Highway 5, service building improvement and public relations efforts. The report concludes with a photographs section.
