National Parks Conservation Association Mourns Loss of Lady Bird Johnson

Statement by Thomas C. Kiernan, President, National Parks Conservation Association

“The National Park Conservation Association joins the nation in mourning the passing of Lady Bird Johnson. During her husband’s administration, 150 laws were enacted benefiting the environment, many of which were the result of Mrs. Johnson’s own efforts to improve and protect America’s landscape. Her love of nature was a driving force, and her indefatigable work to promote conservation and an appreciation of our national parks and other natural landscapes is a legacy that will be enjoyed for generations.”

 

Most recently, Mrs. Johnson joined 100 prominent Americans on a letter to Congress seeking greater funding and protections for national parks.
