Sheyenne Lake National Wildlife Refuge is a 800-acre (320 ha) National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in the U.S. state of North Dakota.[2][3] Sheyenne Lake NWR is an easement refuge and is on privately owned land, but the landowners and U.S. Government work cooperatively to protect the resources.[4] The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service oversees Sheyenne NWR from their offices at Audubon National Wildlife Refuge.[5]
