New York’s American Museum of Natural History continues its yearlong celebration of the nation’s 26th president with its Theodore Roosevelt Memorial exhibit that honors the “Father of Conservation.” Roosevelt had his hand in many of the conservation efforts across the U.S., including the establishment of 150 national forests and five national parks — saving approximately 230 million acres of public land — during his presidency. The two-story memorial showcases a touch-screen timeline of significant events in Roosevelt’s life, a bronze sculpture depicting him during a camping trip to Yosemite in 1903, special educational programs and a variety of never-before-displayed artifacts from the museum’s collections.
