Description

The vision of Sullys Hill National Game Preserve (NGP) is for broad community support to protect and manage big game, migratory birds, and other wildlife resources and their associated prairie and woodland habitats. This is accomplished while promoting Sullys Hill NGP as a regional conservation learning center to enhance understanding and support for America's wildlife heritage and National Wildlife Refuge System. Sullys Hill NGP is located on the south shore of Devils Lake in Benson County, North Dakota. The Preserve consists of 1,674 acres of woodlands, savannahs, prairies, and wetlands and is home to a myriad of migratory birds and big game. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt, signed a presidential proclamation, which set aside Sullys Hill as a National Park. On March 3, 1931, Congress transferred Sullys Hill to the National Wildlife Refuge System where it would be maintained as a Big Game Preserve, refuge, and breeding grounds for wild animals and birds. In addition to bison, elk, and white-tailed deer, Sullys Hill NGP is home to prairie dogs, turkeys, red fox, skunk, raccoon, beaver, and many other small mammals. More than 200 bird species, including waterfowl and many passerine species, have been observed at Sullys Hill NGP.
