Visit three national parks and monuments. What can you discover with just your eyes?
Theodore Roosevelt always loved being outside. As a boy, he collected tadpoles, sketched birds, observed ants, and took notes about everything he saw. And when he couldn’t get outdoors, he explored nature through books. When he grew up, he never lost this curiosity and love for nature. He visited natural wonders all around the country and all over the world.
As President of the United States, he made conservation a top priority. He worked to preserve our nation’s wilderness and wildlife for future generations. His actions protected about 230 million acres in national parks, monuments, forests, and wildlife refuges.
