Gov. Dennis Daugaard recently signed a bill into law establishing the 615-acre Good Earth State Park at Blood Run. It's South Dakota's 13th state park.

Blood Run was designated a national historic landmark in 1970. The area along the Big Sioux River bordering Iowa was used by thousands of Oneota Indians into the early 1700s. The area includes a large oak forest, rolling hills, flood plains, riverside bluffs and burial mounds.

The meeting will take place April 8 in Sioux Falls.
