Badlands National Park

Badlands National ParkBadlands National Park
This Badlands National Park presentation was prepared by Otto Bochman for the Western Dakota Tech / National Park Service Plus 50 Class Rapid City South Dakota.

Badlands National Park is home to one of the largest fossil beds in the world. Because of the rapid erosion, fossils are still often found. The Ben Reifel Visitor Center contains lots of information about the fossils as well as educational materials.

A lot of South Dakota history is part of the Badlands story. Enjoy the beauty of the landscape but take the time to research the human history of the area as well.
