The Perry Nature Area encompasses 23 acres of diverse ecosystems, including woodlands, upland grasslands and riparian areas, and is home to a wide variety of native plants and numerous species of wildlife. In addition to these natural features, the area is linked to a rich cultural history.
The nature area is the former East Sioux Falls town site, a community established in the late nineteenth century due to the nearby quarrying of a pink stone called Sioux quartzite. The stone from these quarries was used in many historic buildings in the region. Perry Nature Area is dedicated to the preservation of the wonderful natural treasures of the site and the storied history of this once bustling city.
