Dewey C. Gevik
Outdoor Learning Center
The Dewey C. Gevik Outdoor Conservation Learning
Area is an interpretive educational experience open to
the public. This learning area emphasizes conservation
practices, their design, function, and beneficial
relationship to the environment. Through the
information presented, individuals will reach a greater
understanding and appreciation for wildlife, the
environment, and the need for conservation of our
natural resources for future generations.
Conservation practices established at the learning
area are: grassed waterway with rock weir structure,
shelterbelt plantings, native grass plantings, rock
crossing, and a natural wetland. These practices were built and are maintained to give the general public a better understanding of the benefits of conservation.
