Abstract

In the summer of 1882 a group of Harvard’s Champlain Society undergraduates, led by Charles Eliot, son of Harvard president Charles William Eliot, conducted the first natural history surveys of Mount Desert Island and were the first people to advocate for its conservation and stewardship. How young people become agents of land and biodiversity protection is highlighted, as well as what different student groups are currently doing in conservation work.
