Im Gifford Pinchot. I was for the conservation of forests and in 1896 i joined the National Forrest Commission, a group founded by Theodore Roosevelt. I helped reform the National Park systems.
I felt as though forest preserves should not be kept just for beauty though, and wanted to still use the forests and waters. I helped create Forrest Preserves. that were still being used as resources
Here I am with FDR. He was also for Conservation so i backed him when he ran for president.
Pinchot and I helped each other out when He ran for Governor and together we helped people during the depression. Pinchot helped build roads and made working camps.
I would have helped pinchot run for governor some more but I can't even run myself!
