History of the conservation Movement

The American Memory Project from the Library of Congress covers documents here from the Conservation Movement from 1847 - 1920. As early as 1847, with the speech of Charles Perkins Marsh to the Agricultural Society about the impact of human activity on the environment, a movement was begun to create new ways to work.   Engage your students by sharing these diverse documents from speeches, to essays, to photographs and proposed Bills to Congress - how have we progressed and what work still needs doing?
