Event Details

Adam Lindquist is a living history speaker and educator who is nationally known for his work for portraying our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt. His uncanny resemblance and ability to bring Roosevelt to life earned him national reenactment titles in multiple years.

Adam’s work in conservation initiatives as Theodore Roosevelt has helped raise millions of dollars for habitat preservation, and in 2014, he helped to create the Organ Mountains/Desert Peaks National Monument where 496,300 acres were saved.

His favorite work continues to be with school children, where each year he educates over 20,000 student’s on Theodore Roosevelt. Topics include conservation and appreciation of a love of the outdoors; the importance of character; developing determination with acceptance that success is not guaranteed but failure is never permanent; and maintaining a vision towards a productive and positive future for ourselves and others.

This project is funded with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
