North Dakota is a vast and wild state that is currently facing a significant land usechallenge. Until recently, the State was best known for its wide-open spaces, ranching and agriculture. The internationally famous Badlands of North Dakota inspired President Theodore Roosevelt to create the National Park System. The state has the 4th lowest population density in the U.S., with less than 10 people per square mile. North Dakota has a long history of progressive, independent, self-sufficiency, and is the homeland of several Native American Tribes that still live there today. The 100 Miles of Wild project has a simple aim: discover first-hand the condition of the “wilderness” that inspired Roosevelt’s effort to preserve wilderness for all Americans and the World.
