Conservation Lands Foundation celebrates the Biden administration’s early commitments to safeguarding our environment and addressing climate change. We also recognize that the new administration has a formidable task to undo Trump’s attacks on America’s public lands. This includes changes to the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan that gut protections for millions of acres of National Conservation Lands in the California Desert.

For a deeper dive, we invite you to read this Q&A with Jim on the importance of the DRECP.
