General Information

Description - Lake Alice is home to the second largest Franklyn's Gull colony in the world.

Lake Alice NWR lies within the Devils Lake Watershed, a closed drainage system. It is an area of glacial drift and lacustrine plains, formed by continental ice sheets during the latter part of the Wisconsin glaciation. Three watersheds converge at Lake Alice on this journey toward Devils Lake. The Mauvais Coulee originates about 45 miles north of Lake Alice and gathers 700 square miles of drainage area. The St. Joe and Calio Coulees contribute run-off from 250 square miles.

Fifteen wetland enhancement projects will be constructed on Lake Alice NWR funded through a North American Wetland Conservation Act Grant. These wetlands projects will provide wildlife habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife species and provide flood water storage in the spring in the Devils Lake Watershed.

Location - Lake Alice NWR is located in Ramsey and Towner Counties in northeastern North Dakota, approximately 18 miles northwest of the city of Devils Lake.
