National parks delayed

The start of national parks in the 19th Century is really rather strange, given the attitudes of the time. What if this development were delayed until the 20th Century, say the 1920s? The environment may be greatly degraded by those few extra decades, and places like Yellowstone may be ruined forever (geysers outside protected areas have been ruined by surprisingly slight interference, for example). How close was the effort to found the first parks?
