Born October 27, 1858, Theodore Roosevelt created enough federal wildlife reservations, national game preserves, national forests, national parks and national monuments in his lifetime to conserve 234 million acres of wild America.
A man of deep conviction and above all a man of action, Roosevelt had the foresight to take on the issues still so significant to sportsmen today, understanding that if we want to ensure that critical fish and wildlife habitat, special hunting grounds and secret fishing holes will be around for future generations, we must act now.
In the spirit of T.R., on this, his 151st birthday, take action on the conservation issues that matter the most to you. The TRCP is working every day to sustain our nation's irreplaceable outdoor heritage. Your help can guarantee that all Americans have access to high-quality places to hunt and fish - now and forever. Support the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership today.
"Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind." -Theodore Roosevelt
