Today’s Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris is a landmark of hope that our government will rebuild the connections with its people and to the country’s natural environment that sustains us.
President Biden’s Day One Executive Order is expected to include actions to undo the rash of anti-environmental policies enacted by the Trump Administration, setting a course to conserve the inherent values of the natural environment to mitigate climate change and build resiliency for our people and country.
A direction to the Department of the Interior to review the Trump Administration’s illegal cuts to protected areas of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments signals respect for Tribal sovereignty that we fully embrace.
Our conservation community—powered by passion, positivity and pragmatism—is ready to build an inclusive Democracy and government that is responsive to the needs of this critical time in history as climate change disrupts our economies and ecosystems.
America's public lands can act as an important unifying influence for our society and we are re-energized to rebuild and steward their renewal. Together we will chart a path to a better and brighter future. Together we are a force for nature and people.
