On June 29, 1938, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the law and established Olympic National Park. This massive park, located in Washington State, consists of 922,651 protected acres, 70 miles of rugged windswept coastline, and three distinct ecosystems.  The park protects the largest unmanaged herd of Roosevelt elk in the world and was nearly named “Elk National Park.”
