As an American, you own 618 million acres of wild public lands, including our national parks and forests, wildlife refuges and federally managed desert and prairie lands. Many of these wildlands are at risk from poor management decisions that favor development over conservation. We all have a stake in seeing these lands conserved. Learn about the ways we're working to make that happen and join us in the fight!
Land and Water Conservation
Many of our nation's wildest lands and waters are threatened by development and degradation. Our programs work on gaining protections for those lands so they can remain healthy and wild.
People and Nature
Many Americans face barriers to accessing the great outdoors, whether financial, geographic or cultural. Our programs help ensure all people can enjoy public lands, regardless of background.
Energy and Climate
As owners of public lands, we have the right to ask that special places be protected from destructive energy development and that our lands not be used irresponsibly.
