Theodore Roosevelt: 
Wilderness Warrior in Washington State
Friday, September 11, 2015    
  4 PM Steilacoom Library 

In 1903, President Teddy Roosevelt took a 17-city whistle-stop tour through Washington to spotlight the ‘western wonderlands” by promoting conservation, irrigation, and prudent use of natural resources. 

He visited the first federally-funded irrigation district in Sunnyside, and the northwest’s magnificent forests, speaking to crowds at every stop.
Roosevelt’s tour inspired Washington’s wilderness legacy: forests, parks, wildlife refuges and more. 

He combined politics with citizenship, crossing political lines and creating legacies for future generations.

 History buff and educator Scott Woodward will talk about Roosevelt’s tour. Woodward taught American history, anthropology and Washington state history in Richland and at Columbia Basin College before retiring. He is president of the Tapteal Greenway in Yakima, and Ridges to Rivers Open Space Network, supporting education, recreation and conservation in the Mid-Columbia area. 

Woodward’s free talk is co-sponsored by Friends of Steilacoom Library and Steilacoom Historical Museum Association.
