PEMBINA GORGE


View Larger Map

The Pembina Gorge, a 12,500 acre area just west of Walhalla, is one of the largest river valleys in North Dakota that has been left largely unaltered, allowing woodlands to flourish. The Gorge is home to over 21 different types of animals and 30 plant species, 8 of which are indigenous to the Pembina Gorge. The Gorge offers hunting, fishing, hiking and bird watching in the spring, summer and fall and downhill skiing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing in the winter. Fox, moose, elk and wild turkey can be seen all through the region.

A drive through the Rendezvous Region during the farming season will offer wonderful surprises. Fields of brilliant sunflowers dance around a bend in the road. Mustard, barley, beans, corn, oats, potatoes, rye, wheat and sugar beets sprout left and right. Steam puffs from the state’s largest corn-to-ethanol plant, and rivers sparkle as they flow past the many picnic areas in the region.

Birds to see: Great Horned Owl, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Tree Swallow, Least Flycatcher, Eastern Phoebe, House Wren, Yellow-throated Vireo, Red-eyed Vireo, Yellow Warbler, American Redstart, Ovenbird, Gray Catbird, American Robin, Veery, American Goldfinch, Red-tailed Hawks, Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles.

Rare birds: American Woodcock, Red-headed Woodpecker, Say’s Phoebe
