Fun facts

Badlands National Park lies in South Dakota, encompassing territory originally held by the Sioux Nation of Plains Indians. It contains 244,000 acres of untouched wilderness, including visually striking hills and valleys, along with grass prairie. It was designated a national park in 1978, and contains hiking and biking trails so that visitors can enjoy the surroundings. Usatoady.com

The park contains numerous examples of native wildlife, notably the American bison, which grazes on the plains, and smaller animals, such as the badger and black-tailed prairie dog. Most notably, since 1994 the park has served as the site for the reintroduction of the black-footed ferret, one of the most endangered animals in the world, which depends upon the park’s protected status to thrive.

More fun facts

Badlands National Park contains numerous fossils of extinct creatures, largely from the Oligocene era of about 30 million years ago. The period was dominated by mammals such as prehistoric camels and rhinoceroses, specimens of which have been uncovered in the park; Badlands also has produced fossils from marine life, such as snails and turtles. Scientists and workers from the South Dakota School of Mines have come to the park to search for fossils every year since 1899.usatoday.com

The hills and buttes in Badlands National Park consist largely of sedimentary rock. Because they have eroded in such dramatic formations, it’s easy to detect the geological history of the area through the different-colored layers of rock visible in the hillside. The rock in the park is eroding at a rate of 1 inch per year; branches of the Cheyenne, White, and Bad rivers contribute greatly to the erosion.usatoday.com
