summary
The Pinchot Institute for Conservation was dedicated in 1963 to further the legacy of conservationist Gifford Pinchot (1865–1946). A pioneer in his field, Pinchot was widely regarded as the father of American forest conservation and an adamant steward of natural resources for future generations. Char Miller highlights many of the important contributions of the Pinchot Institute through its first fifty years of operation. Miller details individual programs led by the Pinchot Institute, such as Common Waters, a project to protect the local Delaware River Basin as a drinking water source for millions of residents, and the Forest Health-Human Health Initiative which exchanges health care credits to rural American landowners who maintain their carbon-capturing forestlands. As this engaging study shows, the Pinchot Institute has continued the work of its namesake in protecting ecosystems for future generations.
