Overview

Originally established as Lake Susie Migratory Waterfowl Refuge by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939, the refuge changed its name to McLean National Wildlife Refuge with the same purpose of protecting breeding grounds for migratory birds and other wildlife. The 760-acre refuge is in McLean County in western North Dakota; its headquarters are in Coleharbor, North Dakota, from where it is administered as part of the Audubon National Wildlife Refuge Complex. This refuge has fee-title lands and conservation easements. The refuge includes acreage owned by the North Dakota State Land Department as an easement. A dam built in the 1930s and reconstructed in 2003 creates the large wetland that is locally known as Lake Susie and provides excellent wetland habitat for migratory birds. The Service does not allow hunting or fishing at the refuge. General public use is closed on the refuge.
