Design candidates were developed in consultation with representatives of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The colorful Little Missouri River Badlands provides the dramatic scenic backdrop to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which memorializes the 26th President for his enduring contributions to the conservation of our nation’s resources. An abundance of native grasses provides sustenance for prairie dogs and large grazing animals while diverse habitats attract a great number of birds. Wildlife viewing is one of the most popular activities in the park. It was established as a national site in 1946.
