FWS FUN. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has fun games and learning sessions for kids online at its website. From nature-related word searches to conservation videos there’s plenty to add to your home-school curriculum.
GETTING GRAY. The arctic grayling is an interesting species, found predominantly in northern latitudes but also in Montana in decreasing numbers over the past century. Recent efforts to repopulate streams have had some success, and the large-finned fish can be found in the western portion of the state.
WHITE GIANTS. The pallid sturgeon is likely North Dakota’s biggest fish and also one of its rarest. Reaching lengths of up to seven feet and found only in the upper stretches of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers in ND it is listed as an Endangered species.
