    In the United States, the movement to conserve the environment began during the progressive era of the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the 1870s sportsman magazines such as American Sportsmen, Forest and Stream, and Field and Stream are seen as leading to the growth of the conservation movement. This conservation movement also urged the establishment of state and national parks and forests, wildlife refuges, and national monuments intended to preserve noteworthy natural features. Influential conservationists included President Theodore Roosevelt, George Bird Grinnell, Gifford Pinchot prominent sportsmen founded the Boone and Crockett Club, the Izaak Walton League and John Muir, the founder of the Sierra Club in 1892. Conservationists organized the National Parks Conservation Association, the Audubon Society, and other groups that still remain active.
