MICHAEL BOGERT: Photo Gallery — White Horse Hill National Game Preserve

Grand Forks photographer Michael Bogert recently made a trip White Horse Hill National Game Preserve, a 1,674-acre national wildlife refuge sitting on the south shores of Devils Lake, about 10 miles south of the city of Devils Lake, N.D. The refuge was first established April 27, 1904, as Sullys Hill National Park. It was designated by Congress as a big game preserve in 1914 and later transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1931 to be further set aside as a refuge and breeding grounds for migratory birds and wildlife. The preserve supports a unique community of habitats such as an oak, ash, basswood, and aspen woodland; and mixed-grass prairie, interspersed with some natural and created wetlands.
