President Biden has inherited an immense task when it comes to America’s public lands: undo the Trump Administration's actions to open to mining and drilling millions of acres of National Conservation Lands across six western States and Alaska. 

This includes Alaska’s Reserve, the California Desert, Oregon’s Owyhee Canyonlands, Colorado’s North Fork Valley, Utah’s Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, and others. 

With your help, we fought the Trump Administration’s efforts to fast-track decisions every step of the way. 

We are activating the power of local communities to support President Biden’s work to restore and expand protections for America’s National Conservation Lands.

Join the movement!

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