Saguaro National Park Created

Protection of the Saguaro forests started in 1933. Herbert Hoover protected a small land area near Tuscon, AZ as a National Monument. After a decades long struggle for environmental protection and substantive developments made by the CCC, the area was finally protected as a National Park under the presidency of Bill Clinton.

Petrified Forest National Park Created

The Petrified Forest was originally protected as a National Monument under the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt in 1906. After improvements made by the Civilian Conservation Corps and land acquisition by the federal government, it was authorized as a National Park.

Grand Canyon National Park Created

Federal protection of the Grand Canyon began in 1893 when it was classified as a forest preserve. It became a game preserve under President Theordore Roosevelt in 1906, and after a land addition, it became a National Monument in 1908. Near the end of World War I, it was protected as a National Park under the presidency of Woodrow Wilson.
