    Earth Day: Conservation and Stewardship
         Read the President's Speech


    Today's Presidential Action

  • President Bush traveled to the Adirondack Park in upstate New York to observe the 33rd annual Earth Day, where he called for stronger cooperation between government, the private sector and individuals to increase environmental conservation and stewardship.

  • This year, Earth Day coincides with the beginning of National Volunteer Week. The President also highlighted the important work that volunteers do on environmental conservation projects across the country, and the importance of every American taking personal responsibility for protecting and enhancing their local environment.

    Background on Today's Presidential Action

  • The Adirondack Park is a New York State park protected by a “forever wild” amendment to the state constitution in 1894.

    While the public lands within the Park are controlled by the State of New York, the history of the Adirondack Park and recent land conservation initiatives in the area demonstrate the importance of personal stewardship and public/private cooperation in land conservation.

    The Park is a unique mix of public and private lands, with about half the land within the park’s boundaries (known locally as the “blue line”) remaining in private hands.
