Teddy Roosevelt said of the Badlands, "It was here that the romance of my life began."

The young Roosevelt first came to the Dakota Territories in 1883 and returned often to tend to his ranches and enjoy the rugged Roughrider lifestyle. The visits continued even while he was in the White House.  

President Roosevelt’s love for the outdoors is well known, as was his commitment to the conservation of our nation’s natural resources. During his time in office, he created the United States Forest Service, enabled the 1906 American Antiquities Act, and eventually established game preserves, national forests, national parks, and national monuments that protected 230 million acres of land.  

Roosevelt's efforts started a long history of American working to preserve the natural beauty of our magnificent country. Over the last 100 years, we have nearly tripled the amount of U.S. land conserved through national parks, forests, and refuges.

Starion Bank celebrates President Roosevelt’s vision of conservation, and we put those beliefs into practice whenever and wherever we can. Our branch locations are landscaped with native prairie grasses and flowers that require less water to maintain. We use geothermal heating and cooling in new construction and have installed solar panels and automatic energy-saving lights on many of our existing offices. The Starion Bank Fargo Urban Plains branch has a 3,000-square-foot living roof, one of the first like it in the Fargo-Moorhead area.  

Our commitment to conservation and social responsibility is just one of the reasons why we are so excited about our partnership with Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library. The library is expected to open in 2025, a short three years away. While the project has received some funding assistance, there is still a lot of work to be done in building and maintaining the library for future generations. 

To do our part in honoring Roosevelt and his legacy, Starion is boosting fundraising efforts with a lineup of branded smart banking products themed after our 26th President.
