The Nature Study Movement 

The nature study movement that arose at the end of the nineteenth century was characterized by increasing numbers of Americans communing with the natural world in an effort to cope with the rise of industrialism and its attendant isolation of people away from open spaces. In The Nature Study Movement Dr. Kevin C. Armitage illustrates that this movement gave rise to the inclusion of nature study in many school curricula, and consequently influenced the thoughts of early conservationists and launched the conservation movement.
