What is it about a place that draws us to it? What was it about Washington state that drew Theodore Roosevelt and what legacies did he leave behind to ensure a sense of place for generations to come? After exploring the Dakotas, eastern Wyoming and eastern Montana in search of TR’s western roots, Scott and his wife Pamela created a presentation that traveled around the Tri-Cities extolling the spirit of Roosevelt’s influence in that region and introducing the audience to sites they may have never seen before. Why not do the same for their home state of Washington? In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt made a 17-stop tour of Washington state inspiring thousands of Washington “pioneers” on both sides of the Cascades. This program historically tracks that tour and documents the legacies that TR left behind to guarantee our sense of place including our National Wildlife Refuges, National Forests and National Parks.
