    While they hadn’t yet coined the term “environmental” until fairly recently, our third president, President Lincoln, the 16th president, made some major decisions regarding America’s environment. He established the US Department of Agriculture. Since 90% of the country’s population this made major waves concerning the way people treated their land. He established the National Academy of Sciences. He signed one of the first conservation laws, which helped lay the groundwork for the national parks service. He also signed a bill which protected Yosemite Valley in California.
