Finding the law: Conservation in the U.S. Code

A collection of general and permanent laws relating to conservation, passed by the United States Congress, are organized by subject matter arrangements in the United States Code (U.S.C.; this label examines conservation topics), to make them easy to use (usually, organized by legal areas into Titles, Chapters and Sections). The platform provides introductory material to the U.S. Code, and cross references to case law. View the U.S. Code’s table of contents here.

Conservation in the U.S. Code: Title 16

The current, permanent, in-force federal laws regulating conservation are compiled in the United States Code under Title 16. It constitutes “prima facie” evidence of statutes relating to Conservation (including conservation) of the United States. The reader can further narrow his/her legal research of the general topic (in this case, Parks and Monuments of the US Code, including conservation) by chapter and subchapter.
