Dewey C. Gevik
Outdoor Learning Center

The Dewey C. Gevik Outdoor Learning Center showcases natural resources and provides examples of quality conservation practices, while also filtering the water flowing into Wall Lake. This learning area demonstrates the design, function, and beneficial relationship to the environment these practices have.By presenting this information, we hope that individuals will reach a greater understanding and appreciation for wildlife, the environment, and the need for conservation of our natural resources for future generations.


Open year round to the public, this interpretive educational experience features: wetland restoration, a grassed waterway with a rock weir structure, rock crossings, shelterbelts, native grass plantings, observation decks, and walking trails. The Minnehaha Conservation District is honored to continue managing and maintaining this area for the public.


We hope you will enjoy looking through the pictures below.  To visit, go to 1/2 mile west of Wall Lake, or 1/4 mile north of the intersection of 266th Street and 462nd Avenue, about eight miles west of Sioux Falls.
