It’s unlikely that anyone has had a more significant positive impact on our U.S. public lands than Teddy Roosevelt, which is why it’s fitting that he has a national park named after him. Tucked into the Badlands of North Dakota, the park celebrates and memorializes the life of this remarkable conservationist.
In this episode, we discuss Roosevelt’s experiences as a young man living in North Dakota, his prodigious record of creating and protecting public lands, and his role in helping save our National Mammal, the bison, from near extinction.
We also talk about the various units of the park, activities you’ll want to consider doing in each, and information about where to stay and the best times of the year to visit.
