Protect What Matters
Conservation Lands Foundation is pursuing the greatest opportunity to stop the decline of nature and wildlife in the U.S. Join the community-based movement to protect America’s public lands and a better future for all.
We’re the only nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and expanding America’s National Conservation Lands – 37 million acres (and growing!) of public lands, rivers, and trails.
Help us take action today.
The U.S. needs to protect millions more acres as National Conservation Lands to ensure a healthy and prosperous future for all.

Why It Matters
Nature and biodiversity are declining at record rates in the U.S. If we don’t stop the decline, we’ll lose vital sources of clean air and water, diverse plants and wildlife, sacred and cultural sites, recreational opportunities, and critical drivers of local economies.
What Are National Conservation Lands?
These essential landscapes are among the most spectacular natural, cultural, and archaeological places in the country.
Your support today helps us protect the vulnerable places that are essential for preventing further biodiversity loss and ensuring healthy people and planet for generations to come.
Use The Climate Atlas to learn more about the biodiversity, climate, and other benefits of our country’s public lands – and to identify new opportunities for their protection.
