Wendy Ross, Park Superintendent

Wendy Ross, Superintendent of Theodore Roosevelt National Park


As Superintendent of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, I would like to personally welcome you to your national park.

I have an intense personal connection to the park. Like President Roosevelt, I found solace in the Badlands when I was young and impressionable. My father served as Superintendent of this park, and his ashes now rest among the colorful buttes overlooking the Little Missouri River at Wind Canyon. Words cannot express how honored I am to manage this magnificent landscape.

This section of the website details many of our park management mandates and regulations. You will also find links to information about various park projects and how to provide your input on the decisions that are being made for your park.

We are all stewards of our national parks. As the National Park Service enters its second century, we are engaging with our visitors to offer the quality services people expect to find at a national park. Together we can build a stronger park, a stronger community, and preserve Theodore Roosevelt National Park for this and future generations.

Enjoy your visit, and I hope to see you in the park!
