People create change

We know from experience that durable public lands conservation requires local people who fight for the land day in and day out.

Our Friends Grassroots Network is a national movement of more than 80 community-based organizations focused on protecting, restoring, and expanding National Conservation Lands.

Some of these groups are all-volunteer led, while others have paid staff. They host hikes, undertake restoration projects, and serve as local sentries to protect the lands all of us love and need.
