National Park Wilderness Hike Highlights the Spring Season
Theodore Roosevelt National Park will usher in the summer season with the first in a series of Wilderness Hikes on Sunday, May 30. This springtime outing will highlight early wildflowers, a symphony of sounds as migratory birds return to their favorite nesting areas, and newborn wildlife. Backcountry Ranger John Heiser will lead the hike into the park's North Unit wilderness to observe the sights and sounds of the season.
"The park's backcountry is beautiful this time of year, and the hike will take people where they might not go on their own," said Superintendent Valerie Naylor. "This is a great opportunity for visitors to spend part of Memorial Day weekend exploring the park with an experienced ranger."
