Supporting conservation is just one enduring aspect of President Johnson’s legislative legacy. During his administration, Johnson led the passage of many laws and regulations to help preserve the natural resources of the United States, including the Clean Air Act, Wilderness Act, Endangered Species Act, Highway Beautification Act, and even created the National Trail System.
