Take Action

Don't Give Away Our Public Lands to Private Companies

Our public lands, enjoyed and loved by people across the country, are under attack like never before.

Despite the growing importance of these shared spaces to families from all walks of life, public lands are facing an unprecedented threat. Powerful politicians are working in statehouses and the halls of Congress to convert public property to private profit.

Here’s what’s at stake:

  • President Trump eliminated over 85% of Bears Ears and nearly half of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments with an Executive Proclamation—and now eight more national monuments remain on the chopping block.
  • One of our most important conservation programs—The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)—is set to expire in September, and there’s been little movement in Congress to reauthorize or fully fund the program.
  • State Legislation is looking to expand drilling, mining, and logging on public land—closing them off to the public.

Our public lands are our shared resources and natural history. They encapsulate some of the most beautiful terrain in North America, support our iconic wildlife, and provide an opportunity for every citizen to experience and learn about our natural world.

But if these public lands attacks hit home—special places like Rio Grande del Norte National Monument and the Appalachian Trail will be ruined so that a few private companies can profit. Drilling, logging and mining forever change the landscapes they touch, long after anyone is making money off them. We shouldn't permanently scar our shared public lands for a temporary benefit of just a few people.

Sign the petition to tell your members of Congress you want them protect our public lands from exploitation—not facilitate their permanent destruction.

LETTER THAT WILL BE SENT:

Don't Give Away Our Public Lands to Private Companies

Dear Representative, 

I care deeply about America's natural heritage, and I know you do, too. We are entrusting our public lands to you, and I urge you to stand strong against attacks on public lands from those in Congress who want to sell them off for private profit. Please do all you can to preserve public lands and reject any measure that eliminates funding or sells these lands off. The American people support the protection of our natural areas, which safeguard our water supplies, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities. I urge you to keep public lands public, to ensure Americans can experience nature and the special places that preserve our country's history.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
