Medora brings people from all over the world to experience the majesty of the Badlands, the nightly musical, and its wonderful history. To adore it.

This includes the employees.

Recently, we were able to speak with one of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation’s employees.

When You Don’t Have Time to Read Remember: Ta Eph’hemin

By Jewel Eliese

Do you have time to read?

 

Most people would say they don’t, especially when they are a busy Medora employee.
