In six western states and Alaska, the Trump Administration is fast-tracking and cutting the public out of decisions to give away National Conservation Lands that support the economies of hundreds of local communities, vital wildlife habitats and recreation areas used by millions of Americans. 

The administration is also undermining its own ability to be effective stewards of our public lands, but you can take action to stop them: join Conservation Lands Foundation and 80 conservation organizations and businesses and Tell Secretary Bernhardt to Restore Protections for LGBTQ Employees.

One recent assault on our public lands is a proposed four-lane highway through southern Utah's Red Cliffs National Conservation Area (NCA)—which exists to protect the already-threatened Mojave desert tortoise. Your voice is crucial to help us stop this highway: take action here.

This would set a terrible precedent for National Conservation Areas across the West, including places like Red Rock Canyon NCA in Nevada, and Colorado's McInnis Canyons NCA.

People and communities on the frontlines are not sitting idly by and watching the lands we care about systematically get taken from us. With your help, we're going to do what it takes legally and through public pressure to stop the damage to America’s public lands legacy.

Your action - large and small - makes a difference and is needed now more than ever:
