When did the U.S. government begin to worry about forest conservation?



  1. 0 Votes

    The US government began to take action to promote forest conservation in the late nineteenth century with the formation of Yellowstone National Park by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1972. The movement began to snowball from there with the passage of the Forest Reserve Act in 1891. Theodore Roosevelt is often credited with institutionalizing the conservation movement; he signed the National Reclamation Act and created the United States Forest Service.
