59 VETERANS PROJECT: Check Out Rugged Theodore Roosevelt National Park!

Theodore Roosevelt National Park



Years before Theodore Roosevelt became the country’s 26th president, he spent considerable time as a rancher in the rugged North Dakota lands that later became the national park bearing his name. He grew a strong attachment to the landscape that is the park’s three distinct sections covering some 70,000 acres of badlands, forests, prairies, epic trails and scenic terrain abundant with buffalo and wildlife.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park was established in 1947 to commemorate the president’s dedication to preserving the country’s natural beauty.  He purchased stakes in two cattle ranches on the Little Missouri River, and launched a lifelong conservation campaign that would eventually preserve more than 230 million acres of public land. Theodore Roosevelt National Park is a testament and homage to whom many call “The Father of Our National Parks.”

“I never would have been President if it had not been for my experiences in North Dakota.”  –Theodore Roosevelt
