Where is the Garden?
Oahe-Downstream Location Map
Fort Pierre, South Dakota
The Garden is located south of the parking lot by the Visitor Center. A large kiosk is at the edge of the trail.
This project was made possible with a grant from the USFWS Connecting People with Nature - Let's Get Outside fund.
An additional small grant came from the South Dakota Chapter of The Wildlife Society.
USFWS couldn't do this alone - many thanks go to the staff of South Dakota Game Fish & Parks for their participation during all aspects of the project -
The Activity Guide by Jen Fowler was made possible through the SDGFP Wildlife Division Small Grants Program.
Thanks go to the many students that participated in classroom activities to help grow plants and decorate the garden.
Thanks to Colleen Thompson for helping coordinate activities at the garden.
A big Thank You to all the volunteers who will help plant the perennials June 1 and 2.

Thanks to Gary Marrone for his inspiration to getting all of us interested in butterflies. Look for his book Field Guide to Butterflies of South Dakota, published in 2002.
