The 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. The inscription “LAND STEWARDSHIP” anchors the design. Additional inscriptions are "MARSH-BILLINGS-ROCKEFELLER," "VERMONT," "2020," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
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. It was the boyhood home of George Perkins Marsh, one of America's first conservationists. The property was subsequently owned by Frederick Billings, also a conservationist and pioneer in reforestation and scientific farm management, and Laurance S. and Mary French Rockefeller, who transferred the property to the American people.
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. Visitors can tour the mansion and gardens and learn more about land stewardship and conservation by hiking in the managed forest, one of the oldest in the U.S. Visitors can see examples of some of the earliest practices of reforestation dating back to the 1870s alongside more modern approaches to hardwood management. The National Park Service continues the tradition of active forest management to maintain this unique cultural landscape.
