Roosevelt, portrayed by Don Moon of Colorado Springs, will appear at the Gold Coin Club Saturday, February 17 as a fundraiser for the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum.
Theodore Roosevelt is often referred to as the conservation president for his efforts to save our national treasures. Roosevelt, recreated by Don Moon, will provide insight into his work preserving our national treasures via the Antiquities Act of 1906.
After becoming president in 1901, Roosevelt used his authority to protect wildlife and public lands by creating the United States Forest Service (USFS) and establishing 150 national forests, 51 federal bird reserves, four national game preserves, five national parks, and 18 national monuments. During his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt protected approximately 230 million acres of public land.
Advance reservations are highly recommended as a maximum of 50 tickets will be sold. Tickets are $20 each and include the reception and presentation. The event starts at noon at the Gold Coin Club on Diamond Avenue west of North 4th Street.
