The National parks : America's best idea : [last refuge, 1890-1915]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode tells how, by the end of the 19th century, industrialization had left many Americans worried about whether the country would have any pristine land left. Poachers in the parks were rampant, and visitors were littering or carving their names in wilderness sites. Congress had yet to establish judicial authority or set aside appropriations for protection of the parks. This sparked a conservation movement by organizations such as the Sierra Club, led by John Muir; the Audubon Society, led by George Bird Grinnell; and the Boone and Crockett Club, led by Theodore Roosevelt. The movement failed to stop San Francisco from building the Hetch Hetchy Dam at Yosemite, flooding Muir's "mountain temple" and leaving him broken-hearted

The National Parks : America's best idea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Following World War II, the parks were overwhelmed as visitation reached 62 million people a year. This final episode describes how a billion-dollar campaign, Mission 66, was created to build facilities and infrastructure to accommodate the growing flood of visitors. Biologist Adolph Murie introduced the revolutionary notion that predatory animals deserved the same protection as other wildlife. In Florida, Lancelot Jones, grandson of a slave, sold his family's property on a string of unspoiled islands in Biscayne Bay to the federal government to be protected as a national monument. During the late 1970s, President Jimmy Carter set aside 56 million acres in Alaska for preservation--the largest expansion of protected land in history
