Family Man - Conservationist

Family Man
Roosevelt said his father was the greatest man he ever knew, and he was instrumental in building up young "Teedie" from a sickly child into the robust man. Roosevelt's devotion to his family was a sustaining force throughout his life. Sagamore Hill, the family's Oyster Bay home, was a lively hub of love, laughter and learning.

Conservationist
Roosevelt was an avid naturalist, prolific writer, world traveler and intrepid explorer. His first publishing effort, as a teenager in 1877, was a pamphlet entitled "Birds of the Adirondacks in Franklin County." Roosevelt authored more than 35 books on a variety of topics. He led expeditions to Africa and South America for the Smithsonian Institution and American Museum of Natural History. He protected some of our most important scenic and natural treasures. As Governor, he helped preserve the Palisades escarpment by creating the interstate park. As President, he established the United States Forest Service (1905), the National Monuments Act (1906), and created 5 national parks, 18 national monuments, 150 national forest, 4 national game preserves and 51 national bird sanctuaries.
