"WE EITHER MOVE NOW TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY'S ICONIC CULTURAL AND NATURAL LANDSCAPE, OR IT WILL BE PERMANENTLY TAKEN FROM FUTURE GENERATIONS."
- Peter Metcalf, Founder & CEO Emeritus of Black Diamond Equipment and Conservation Lands Foundation Board Member
We invite you to add your passion, expertise and financial support to ensure America's national monuments are protected on the ground and in the courts by supporting the National Monument Defense Fund.
Together, we are building robust legal, legislative and policy defense to safeguard America's remaining iconic and treasured public lands.

America's great conservation estate and the outdoor heritage it represents are under attack as never before. The Administration's abuse of the Antiquities Act to re-draw boundaries and open millions of acres within Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments to privatization and desecration is against the law, science and the will of the American people.
AN ATTACK ON ONE IS AN ATTACK ON ALL
If we don’t hold the line now, the future of other monuments will be at risk. That’s why the Conservation Lands Foundation and our grassroots partners are engaged in lawsuits to uphold the integrity of the Antiquities Act, reinstate the original boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, and ensure many other publicly-owned lands are backed by strong and enduring conservation policies for the future.
ON THE GROUND AND IN THE COURTS
The Conservation Lands Foundation's model for impact and success is like no other. We know the fight for National Conservation Lands extends far beyond Washington D.C. courts. For more than a decade, we’ve been leading a conservation movement of locally-based advocates across the West. Now at 70 organizations and counting, we provide local advocates with legal resources and representation so they can effectively engage in and respond to threats that endanger the clean air and water, wildlife habitat, scenic beauty, local economies and outdoor traditions that America's national monuments support.

By joining the National Monuments Defense Fund, you’ll be a trusted partner in the most important public lands legal defense in America. You’ll be invited to insider briefings, gatherings with our Board of Directors, strategy sessions and fly-in visits to Washington D.C., and more.
