Site Description: 

Spanning 1,500 acres along the Missouri River, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota in 1984 by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searl Adams. They envisioned the area as a place where others, particularly youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Mary and Maud wanted to give others a "place for inner renewal."

Adams features more than 10 miles of trails that wind through prairie, forest and along the riverbank. And, with over 100 species of birds, a variety of native plants and a number of different animals, visitors are immersed in nature. Wildlife viewing blinds, the displays in the visitor center and nature programs all add to the experience.
