“There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country. Just as we must conserve our men, women and children, so we must conserve the resources of the land on which they live.”-Theodore Roosevelt
LBJ National Grasslands
The protection of the land that would become the LBJ Grasslands began in the 1930’s and became the domain of the National Forest Service in June of 1960. Although originally a collection of submarginal lands, the National Grasslands has evolved into much more. Along with conservation, the Forest Service now oversees wildlife management, recreation and fire control on these lands. Grasslands Gazette will endeavor to show the diversity of wildlife, flora and recreation in and around the LBJ Grasslands.
