2020 P Marsh Billings-Rockefeller USA National Parks Quarter BU (MS-63)

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Vermont is the only national park dedicated to telling the story of conservation history and the evolving nature of land stewardship in America. It was the boyhood home of George Perkins Marsh, one of America's first conservationists, and later the home of Frederick Billings. The property was given to the American people by its most recent owners, Laurance S. and Mary French Rockefeller.

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Historical Park quarter is the fourth in 2020 and 54th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

Nestled among the rolling hills and pastures of eastern-central Vermont, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is the only national park to tell the story of conservation history and the evolving nature of land stewardship in America. The boyhood home of George Perkins Marsh, and later the home of Frederick Billings, the property was given to the American people by its most recent owners, Laurance S. and Mary French Rockefeller. The park was established in 1992 to:
• Interpret the history and evolution of conservation stewardship in America
• Recognize and interpret the contributions and birthplace of George Perkins Marsh, pioneering environmentalist, author, statesman, lawyer, and linguist
• Recognize and interpret the contributions of Frederick Billings, conservationist, pioneer in reforestation and scientific farm management, lawyer, philanthropist, and railroad builder, who extended the principles of land management introduced by Marsh
• Preserve the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller mansion and its surrounding lands
• Recognize the significant contributions of Julia Billings, Mary Billings French, Mary French Rockefeller, and Laurance Spelman Rockefeller in perpetuating the Marsh-Billings heritage.
Today, the park seeks to engage visitors in exploring the evolving concept of stewardship, defined broadly as the act of people taking care of the special places in their communities and beyond.

This reverse (tails) design depicts a young girl completing the planting of a Norway spruce seedling near an established tree, continuing the life cycle of the forest. The child represents the conservationist, seeking to maintain a sustainable forest for future enjoyment and education. Inscriptions are "LAND STEWARDSHIP," "MARSH-BILLINGS- ROCKEFELLER," "VERMONT," "2020," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
