The national parks America's best idea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To battle unemployment during the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt creates the Civilian Conservation Corps, which spawns a "golden age" for the parks through major renovation projects. In a groundbreaking study, a young NPS biologist named George Melendez Wright discovers widespread abuses of animal habitats and pushes the service to reform its wildlife policies. Congress narrowly passes a bill to protect the Everglades in Florida as a national park -- the first time a park has been created solely to preserve an ecosystem, as opposed to scenic beauty. As America becomes entrenched in World War II, Roosevelt is pressured to open the parks to mining, grazing and lumbering. The president is also subjected to a storm of criticism for expanding Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming by accepting a gift of land secretly purchased by John D. Rockefeller, Jr
