Walking in the footsteps of a Boy... and a President
The Nixon Environmental Legacy
As a boy, Richard Nixon played on and explored this very land right here.
President Nixon transformed America's commitment to preserving and protecting America's natural environment.
Take a moment to consider how you can expand President Nixon's landmark efforts to achieve the "goal of clean air, clean water, and open spaces for the future generations of America."
