Called “The Father of Conservation” and one of American’s finest leaders, Teddy Roosevelt was a true force of nature. During his administration, five new national parks were created, as well as 18 national monuments, four national game refuges and 51 bird sanctuaries. His efforts protected 230 million acres of land and saved many species of animals. Roosevelt also signed into law the Pure Food and Drug Act. This legislation was the first of a series of consumer protection laws that eventually led to the creation of the Food and Drug Administration.
It was said of Teddy Roosevelt, “After you met him, you needed to wring the personality out of your clothes!” He is portrayed by three-time national champion “living historian” and Minnesota native Adam Lindquist, who brings Roosevelt to life for audiences across the country. Presenting to over 150,000 people each year, Mr. Lindquist is eager to share Roosevelt’s wit, wisdom and legacy with us. Don’t miss this historic performance, “Teddy Roosevelt: A Portrait of a Well-Lived Life.”
