This site was reviewed in the Journal of American History, and the reviewer believed that using the site would be rewarding for "students, teachers, and scholars who dig into it in search of documentary evidence for why, in the midst of the Industrial Revolution, Americans from all walks of life began to argue for the conservation of natural resources, preservation of scenic landscapes, and protection of wildlife habitats."  She also indicates that the site ranges from an 1847 address by George Perkins Marsh to the 1920 Federal Water Power Act, so you should not expect information about the modern environmental movement here, as its title indicates.
