Piping plover arrive in North Dakota

Some areas around Lake Sakakawea where Piping Plovers typically nest are inaccessible during this year's nesting season. Park rangers and biologists from several agencies have observed many of the birds at area boat ramps. As the mountain snowpack begins to melt and the runoff arrives at Lake Sakakawea, rising lake elevations reduce the available nesting habitat near the lake and lead to birds nesting in marina parking lots and boat ramp areas. If you discover what appears to be a Plover nest along Lake Sakakawea, or have questions about Piping Plovers, please call the USACE office in Riverdale, N.D. at 701-654-7759. [Read More]
