In the previous lesson we focused on the Conservation Movement, Progressive Era, and Leopold’s land ethic. Conservation first became a national issue during the late 19th century and early 20th century. The primary focus of the movement was to protect natural areas, as well as developing management strategies for managing such areas. The Conservation Movement continued through the middle part of the 20th century. In the mid-20th century, public concern focused on impacts humans were having on the environment—the public became more aware of environmental issues. In the 1960’s a few significant events occurred that synthesize the growing concern humans were having on the environment–environmental impacts. These concerns were crystalized in a new movement—the Modern Environmental Movement. The Modern Environment Movement was a social movement concerned with air and water pollution, but eventually spilled over into all landscapes and human activity. Three significant events (among others) heightened this level of concern. These three events included Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring, the Cuyahoga River, and the Love Canal. This lesson will use these three examples to illustrate human impacts on the environment/nature and the birth of the Modern Environmental movement.
