THIS LAND IS OUR LAND
Our public lands – millions of acres of forests, mountains, rivers, and plains – are a part of who we are. Right now, powerful special interests and their political allies are waging an aggressive campaign to sell off public lands in the west. They want to see our national lands privatized for short-term gain, at the expense of our shared American inheritance. This public land heist threatens hundreds of millions of acres of national forests, rangelands, wildlife refuges, parks, wilderness areas, and historic sites, but it also threatens the fundamental American notion that our public lands belong to everyone.
OWNED BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE
Imagine if the places you like to hike, climb, paddle, ski, bike, fish, hunt, or camp were suddenly sold so that a state government could fix a hole in its budget. That would be a terrible loss. Our public lands support a vibrant recreation economy and millions of jobs. More importantly, our shared enjoyment of American land is a way of life for our generation and the next.
