Long Lake National Wildlife Refuge
Long Lake National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), located near the community of Moffit in south central North Dakota, was established in 1932 as a migratory bird refuge by President Herbert Hoover. Due to a long history of avian botulism outbreaks caused by a bacterial toxin that attacks a bird's central nervous system, a system of dikes was developed to aid in water control. Through manipulation of water levels, the incidence and severity of avian botulism outbreaks have been reduced.
Long Lake NWR is located about 3 miles southeast of Moffit, North Dakota. From U.S. Highway 94 at Sterling, North Dakota, turn south on U.S. Highway 83. Proceed 12 miles south to Moffit, North Dakota. Turn east on 128th Avenue SE and follow the signs to Refuge headquarters. The visitor center is located on the north side of the lake.www.hobogrill.org
