Visits to the park during this annual celebration will be free, as the National Park Service is offering free entrance at all of its 397 parks which regularly charge fees.

"Picture Yourself in a National Park" is the focus of this year's National Park Week. As part of the festivities, the park's new film will premier on Saturday, April 21 at 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. MDT in the South Unit Visitor Center.

Park Elk Reduction Finished Ahead of Schedule

The National Park Service is moving into the maintenance phase of the Elk Management Plan in Theodore Roosevelt National Park this fall, after two highly successful elk reduction efforts during 2010-2011.

"Outstanding efforts by park staff and nearly 400 volunteers resulted in the removal of 868 elk from the park over the past two years," said Superintendent Valerie J. Naylor. "We have met our goal of reducing the population of elk in the South Unit."
