Theodore Roosevelt National Park protects three areas of badlands in western North Dakota. The Little Missouri River flows through the park where prairie dogs tunnel through hills and bison roam. Roosevelt first came to this region to hunt bison in the 1880’s and later bought the Maltese Cross Ranch. He later bought the Elkhorn Ranch which is also part of the present day park. After Roosevelt’s death, the park was named in memorial to his conservation efforts.
