The Wilderness Warriors- Theodore Roosevelt and the Women of Conservation @ Online-ZOOM
Mar 11 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Wilderness Warriors – Theodore Roosevelt and the Women of Conservation
The preservation of natural resources has been an American idea since the creation of the first national park in 1872. Theodore Roosevelt brought his love and training as a naturalist to the forefront in his role as President, saving over 230 million acres of land for public enjoyment including nature reserves and public hunting lands. He did not act alone, as he was influenced by the many women who took their love of birds, hunting, wilderness, and preservation as their calling. You’ll learn his story and the influential women who changed our American landscape for the better and bring it into today and how your efforts continue to leave a lasting legacy to future generations.

Theodore Roosevelt’s face graces Mount Rushmore because of his important legacy of conversation and leadership. While he is long gone, his spirit continues to drive a conservation movement throughout America. Today, Adam Lindquist, a living history performer, and Roosevelt look-alike travels the country to educate people as the great man himself. His work includes programs for schools, colleges, states, and many National Parks. It also includes meetings with congress and the Secretary of the Interior to promote the expansion of our National Parks and Monuments. In a usual year, over 125,000+ people hear his motivating message of why America is and needs to continue to be the world leader in conservation. He has been a popular speaker for Nebraska Games and Parks since 2015.

This event is FREE, but does require pre-registration: https://outdoornebraska.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcpd-CqqTIvGNFkzOhcrCXs4rBLJwX71FPQ
