Theodore Roosevelt at Yosemite

Lifelong Passion for Wilderness Drove Theodore Roosevelt's Conservation Legacy

Ever since his childhood, Theodore Roosevelt had a sharp eye for natural history and a love for the outdoors. When he became President in 1901, he was poised to use his lifelong passion for wildlife and wilderness to direct public policy; while in office, he launched programs that would eventually protect 230 million acres of land.
