As Salazar starts packing, critics assess his conservation record

While Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has overseen the protection of millions of acres of federal lands over the past four years, his signature conservation efforts as Interior's 50th secretary have focused largely on staving off development on farms and ranchlands, including the Flint Hills of Kansas, the prairie grasslands of the Dakotas and Montana's Crown of the Continent. Salazar, 58, who will step down as secretary in coming weeks, said in an interview that he's most proud of his work with private landowners who agree to permanently protect their lands from development through the use of easements.
