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 and information added all the time. We welcome everyone to come and visit the arboretum, pick some grapes growing along the fence, or have a picnic lunch. The arboretum is located at the southwest of the corner of 4th Ave NW and 5th St NW.  Feel free to drive into the arboretum at the approach on the northwest side and park on the grass.

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