Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum and East Sioux Falls Historic Site

A path to yesterday and tomorrow

The Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum and East Sioux Falls Historic Site began as a dream. A local visionary for the environment, Mary Jo Wegner imagined a natural haven in Sioux Falls like others enjoy in major cities. With wetlands, gardens, and native plants, the Arboretum provides recreation and education. A living link to the past and a great stake in our future: the Arboretum will help future generations foster a relationship with the environment while sharing the story of how earlier cultures interacted with the natural world.

The Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum and East Sioux Falls Historic Site is part of the Sioux Falls Parks.
