James L. Cummins is a vice president of the Boone and Crockett Club. The Club was founded in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt. The Club, through Roosevelt and these early leaders of the conservation movement, saw a crisis in humanity’s impact on wildlife and their habitat and called people to action to change North America’s direction. The Club’s initial efforts were aimed at the development and passage of the Timberland Reserve Act in 1891, which began the national forests. The Club worked to develop the Yellowstone Park Protection Act, and played a major role in establishing Glacier National Park, Denali National Park, Holt Collier National Wildlife Refuge and the Theodore Roosevelt National Wildlife Refuge, to name a few.
