He was the first president to pursue conservation issues seriously. Among his achievements, he set aside 230 million acres of land for protection of one type or another, including 150 national forests, 5 national parks, 18 national monument, 51 federal bird refuges, and hosted the conservation conferences to promote conservation goals among the states.
