The first park to truly commemorate coservation efforts in the United States, this landmark located in eastern-central Vermont was given Nation Park status under President George H.W. Bush. The goals of the park are to recognize the contributions of George Perkins Marsh and Frederick Billings to the efforts of conservation in America. The landscape is abundant in natural resources and can be used as an educational resource for the National Park Service and its visitors.
