Roosevelt, Burroughs and the Trip that Saved Nature, Part Five

Chapter Five: Conservation and Preservation
Part of figuring out what a National Park should be, and how America should treat all its wild places and its natural resources, required figuring out both conservation and preservation.
They are not the same thing.
“Conservation” means using natural resources wisely.
“Preservation” means leaving nature just as it is.
It didn’t have to be one or the other, but America had to decide how much of each it wanted, and which was more important.
