“the greatest good for the greatest number in the long run”
Bibi Gaston Landscape Architect, Author, Explorer and Great-grandniece of Gifford Pinchot, will describe the early days of the American conservation movement when Teddy Roosevelt appointed Gifford Pinchot as Chief Forester to the newly created U.S. Forest Service.
Discover some of the challenges the early forest officers faced, in tackling environmental problems a century ago; while preserving and protecting public resources to serve “the greatest good for the greatest number in the long run.”
Bibi will share reflections of the voices of the past and inspire us to renew, take courage, and to conserve our resources for future generations.
