National Parks in Conservation and Land Use
Abstract:Mr. Albright's paper should be read by every forester who is not familiar with the splendid work of the National Park Service. The author first runs over some of the history of the creation of the national parks and the spirit and plan of their development in which educational and inspirational values are kept uppermost. He then enumerates seventeen principles basic to the policies which should govern the establishment, preservation, protection, use and enjoyment of the national parks. In concluding, Mr. Albright makes a plea for coöperation among agencies interested in conservation and land use.
