  • Slide 6 - Changes in the Late 1800s… Western frontier closes Deforestation, flooding and fires Wilderness disappearing John Muir, Theodore Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot Conservationism, was rooted in the upper and upper middle classes. Concerned about outdoor recreation, shrinkage of public lands, and destruction of forests.
  • Slide 7 - Formation of the National Forests 1880s –destructive logging across the Great Lake states created calls for forest protection. Movement in the 1880s for a federal forest protection policy to guard watersheds of major rivers and reserve a portion of federal timberlands from commercial logging. President Benjamin Harrison, from 1891-1893, established 14 million acres of forest reserves (only 1.5 percent of billion acres then in federal ownership
  • Slide 8 - When I came home [from France] not a single acre of Government, state, or private timberland was under systematic forest management anywhere on the most richly timbered of all continents....When the Gay Nineties began, the common word for our forests was "inexhaustible." To waste timber was a virtue and not a crime. There would always by plenty of timber....The lumbermen...regarded forest devastation as normal and second growth as a delusion of fools....And as for sustained yield, no such idea had ever entered their heads Gifford Pinchot, First Chief of the US Forest Service, 1905-1910 First professionally trained US forester
  • Slide 9 - Pinchot invented the term “conservation”. “Conservation means the greatest good to the greatest number for the longest time” 1910 Advocated “preservation through use”. Opposed establishment of National Park Service Proposed to open up Adirondack State Park in New York to logging.
  • Slide 10 - Theodore Roosevelt and Conservation “Forest Protection is not an end of itself; it is a means to increase and sustain the resources of our country and the industries which depend upon them. The preservation of our forests is an imperative business necessity…Whatever destroys the forest destroys our well-being…..the fundamental idea of forestry is the perpetuation of forests by use”. First State of the Union Address
  • Slide 11 - Pinchot grows in influence 1907-forest reserves officially renamed “national forests” 1907-Roosevelt created 16 million acres of national forests just before authority to do so taken away by Congress (Western interests) “midnight reserves” Pinchot given title “Chief Forester of the United States Forest Service

  • Slide 17 - 1930s a second wave, the Dust Bowl, soil conservation programs
  • Slide 18 - FDR: Conservation and the New Deal In response to the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created many programs designed to put America back to work. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), one of the first emergency agencies, was established in early 1933.

Leopold and published as A Sand County Almanac.
  • Slide 20 - The Land Ethic and Aldo Leopold “A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it does otherwise.” “We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
  • Slide 21 - Leopold's land ethic rests on the premise that all elements of the biotic community are interdependent. Leopold first came to this realization during a hunting trip in the Southwest where his party killed a female wolf. He reached the animal in time to see "a fierce green fire" dying in her eyes. "I realized then, and have known ever since that there was something new to me in those eyes--something known only to her and to the mountain."

  • Slide 23 - Silent Spring In 1952 she published her prize-winning study of the ocean, The Sea Around Us, In Silent Spring (1962) she challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world. Established relationship between DDT and fragile bald eagle egg shells.
  • Slide 24 - The Sky is Falling: More Contemporary Environmentalism "Silent Spring" is published 1962 "Over increasingly large areas of the United States spring now comes unheralded by the return of birds, and the early mornings are strangely silent where once they were filled with the beauty of bird song." (from Silent Spring) Rachel Carson received a letter from a friend in Massachusetts in the summer of 1957. Her friend wrote that an airplane hired by the state had flown back and forth over her two acres of woods, spraying DDT to control mosquitos. The next day, there were dead songbirds in her yard.
  • Slide 25 - Silent Spring Her book is often cited as the kick-off of the modern environmental movement. In 1969, Congress passed the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Cancer Institute announced its findings that DDT could produce cancer. In 1972, a federal ban was placed on the pesticide.
