In Memory – Stewart Udall (January 31, 1920 – March 20, 2010)

A titan of the American environmental movement has passed. Secretary of the Interior under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, Stewart Udall (January 31, 1920 – March 20, 2010) was largely responsible for the enactment of environmental laws in Johnson’s Great Society legislative agenda, including the Clear Air, Water Quality and Clean Water Restoration Acts and Amendments, the Wilderness Act of 1964, the Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966, the Land and Water Conservation [Fund] Act of 1965, the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965, the National Trail System Act of 1968, and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968.

Pictured here are a few photos from some of the lands protected under his tenure:  Assateague Island National Seashore, Canyonlands National Park, North Cascades National Park, and Redwood National Park.

    This is a great loss for America and this planet indeed.

    Those of us who love the outdoors owe him a great debt of gratitude for the hard work and sacrifices that he made in helping to create some of our national parks and open spaces.

    Cheers
