Some new changes are in store for Sullys Hill National Game Preserve. The Spirit Lake tribe will now help manage cultural activities at Sullys Hill, introducing more native Culture to go along with the park's natural beauty.

The tribe and US Fish and Game hope this new agreement will improve recreational and educational opportunities at Sullys Hill. Sullys Hill already has a host of educational programs about the nature that surrounds visitors to the preserve, but managers say they want to help share more cultural information. That's where Spirit Lake will help out. Tribal officials hope to share their history and language, and bring more tribal members to the preserve. Sullys Hill is located within reservation boundaries, but this is the first time the tribe will actively help share its culture with visitors.

Managers at Sullys Hill are especially excited about education opportunities for students. The preserve will once again host fifth graders from Devils Lake schools this for the entire school year after launching the program last year.
