North Dakota’s Theodore Roosevelt National Park will be showcased on this year’s 15th park stamp.

The image, released April 22, shows a photograph of the rugged landscape inside the park, which is home to forests, prairies and grasslands.

The park is named after the nation’s 26th president, who came to Dakota Territory to hunt bison in 1883. The area inspired many of the ideas that shaped Roosevelt’s conservation policies.

The stamp will be one of 16 on a pane that commemorates the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary. USPS is revealing the images individually throughout April.

San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens images were released this week.

Previewed earlier this month: Haleakalā National Park, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Grand Canyon National Park, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Everglades National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Bandelier National Monument, Assateague Island National Seashore, Arches National Park and Acadia National Park.

The full pane will be dedicated June 2 at the World Stamp Show in New York City.

Individuals are asked to spread the news on social media using the hashtags #NPSStamps, #FindYourPark and #NPS100.
