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.
We work to protect a network of lands and waters that will sustain life itself—allowing communities and species to adapt and endure amid the climate crisis, sprawling development and other threats.
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.
