South Dakota Web Roundup

Apr 20, 2012

Earth Day is this weekend, and a few organizations around the state are celebrating in style on Saturday. The Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls is hosting a Party for the Planet, Custer State Park visitors will have a chance to build bluebird houses, and South Dakota canoers and kayakers will be slipping their boats in the water for a paddle on the Big Sioux River near Flandreau. This week's web roundup collects a few recent storie relating to our interactions with the natural world in South Dakota. 

Cycle Farm of Spearfish just got in a shipment of bees. Trish writes about getting the insects settled in their new hives. 

Bob Speirs posted this week about the relationship between hunters, landowners and wildlife.

Folks from the South Dakota Oral History Center recently spoke at the Climate Friendly Parks Workshop in Custer to demonstrate that voices and stories from the past can still teach us about sustainability and environmental concerns.

After a bit of controversy, Chicago Tribune readers are finally being educated about the natural wonders of South Dakota, courtesy of Kara Silva's account of a trip to our Badlands
