Since 1951, Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History (TRNHA) has made it our mission to enhance the experience of visitors through education and research. Through the sale of educational merchandise, our goal is to create experiences and connect visitors to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site.
Each year TRNHA works with the National Park Service to set a budget for spending funds raised the previous year. In 2022, we provided the NPS with a total of $130,299 in financial aid. These funds were raised through Park Store sales, memberships, and donations. Each year these funds are used on projects that best enhance your visit. Aid funds support a variety of projects, staffing, supplies, and special events in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site.
In 2022, we were excited to assist with a variety of projects in the parks we serve including special events, construction project, tribal consultation, staffing, supply purchases and more. The highlight for TRNHA was assisting Knife River Indian Villages with the return of Lifeways of Northern Plains and Theodore Roosevelt National Park with Dakota Nights by assisting with presenter fees, supplies, and more to ensure these events were successful after a break due to Covid-19.
Each year our board and staff eagerly awaits for the NPS to provide us with projects and events which will allow us an opportunity to enhance your visit to North Dakota’s Public Lands. As we say goodbye to 2022 and welcome 2023 we are excited for the future and have several great projects planned moving into the new year.
We want to thank our members, friends, and park visitors for your support to our organization and for loving our Public Lands. The past year was a wonderful year and we are confident that 2023 will be nothing short of spectacular!
