State Acquires 236 More Acres For Good Earth Park

State Acquires 236 More Acres For Good Earth Park
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A partnership between South Dakota's Game, Fish and Parks Department, The Conservation Fund, and the U.S. Forest Service has helped secure the last remaining forestland within the Blood Run National Historic Landmark for Good Earth State Park at Blood Run.

The 236-acre property near Sioux Falls offers nature trails through a large oak forest, rolling hills, flood plains and riverside bluffs stretching along 1.6 miles of the Big Sioux River. The picturesque acreage bordering Iowa was used by thousands of Oneota Indians into the early 1700s.

South Dakota acquired the tract on Friday with a grant from the U.S. Forest Service's Forest Legacy Program and fundraising by the South Dakota Parks and Wildlife Foundation.

Good Earth now includes 625 South Dakota acres. Iowa owns another 200 acres across the border.
