The LaMoure County Soil Conservation District owns 2 acres of land in the town of LaMoure that was donated by Don & Mary Lou Gentzkow.  The SCD has turned this land into an arboretum and is open to the public.  The purpose of this arboretum is to provide education and information on a variety of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and grasses that can grow and thrive in our area.  This will be an ever evolving project with more varieties added all the time.  Coming this spring will be a welcome sign and individual plant signs along with newly planted grasses and wildflowers.  Coming this summer will hopefully be a bench and picnic table.

Please stop in and take a look around next time you are in town!
