Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was established in 1935 as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife. It is an important link in a chain of refuges extending from the prairie lands of the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico. Located along the James River in east central North Dakota, Arrowwood NWR's 15,934 acres are made up of lakes, marshes, prairie grasslands, wooded coulees, and cultivated fields. <P>As the James River meanders its way across the prairie, it passes through four main water areas - DePuy Marsh and Arrowwood, Mud, and Jim Lakes. These naturally occurring riverine lakes have control structures at their outlets. <P>Arrowwood NWR is the administrative center for the Arrowwood NWR Complex. The Complex includes approximately 75,000 acres of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands in a nine-county area of central and eastern North Dakota. In addition to Arrowwood NWR, the following areas are part of the Complex: Chase Lake NWR and Wetland Management District (WMD), Valley City WMD, and Arrowwood WMD. <P>
