Lorna Smith Nature Center

The Lorna Smith Nature Center is located at SW-18-03-19-WPM and includes 17.54 acres and an extensive list of native prairie plant and wildlife species. The Lorna Smith Nature Center was acquired from the Smith family by the Turtle Mountain Conservation District and established in 1983. During the spring and summer wild flowers bloom on the uplands around the reservoir and during the spring and fall the reservoir provides a resting area for migrating waterfowl. The center provides an excellent site for outdoor enthusiasts and students to observe and learn about native prairie plants and wildlife. The uplands surrounding the Boissevain Reservoir have been named in recognition of the late Lorna Smith who grew up on a family farm just a short distance north of the site.
