Theodore Roosevelt was a great lover of nature long before he became president. From boyhood throughout his adult life, Roosevelt's enthusiasm for conservation was encouraged and shaped by several influential figures. Early on, Roosevelt's uncle, Robert Barnwell Roosevelt, inspired his nephew with his tireless struggles on behalf of conservation policy. One of his greatest political allies in the crusade to preserve America's natural beauty was Gifford Pinchot, the first chief of the U.S. Forest Service.
