Across the U.S., there are 618 million acres of public lands, including national parks and forests, wildlife refuges and federally managed desert and prairie lands. Many of these special places are threatened by climate change and poor management decisions that favor development over conservation. We all have a stake in seeing these lands protected – now, and for future generations. Learn about the ways we're working alongside our partners to make that happen and join us in the fight!
We work to protect public lands from destructive energy development and ensure they are managed to fight climate change. They can help to lower climate change emissions and buffer against climate change impacts.
Many public lands are threatened by development and degradation. We work to protect these places, ensuring they remain healthy and intact to help communities and wildlife survive the climate and extinction crises.
Across the country, many communities face barriers to accessing the outdoors. Our programs help ensure all people can enjoy the many benefits of public lands, regardless of zip code, background, identity or income level.
