Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
On the weekend of July 21-22 the North Dakota Natural Science Society is sponsoring a tour and presentations on the natural history of the Missouri River. The tour will be based out of the 4H Camp near Washburn, North Dakota. Saturday's events will include presentations on the plants, animals and natural history of the area. A car caravan will tour the area and local authorities will be on hand to explain the natural history of the bluffs and prairies at Cross Ranch and the cultural history of Knife River Indian Village. In the evening the Society will host a dinner and featured speaker. Sunday morning will focus on a canoe trip down the Missouri River.
Anyone interested in the natural history of the Missouri River is encouraged to attend. Dormitory style lodging and room to pitch a tent are available at the 4H Camp for those who wish to stay overnight.
