public lands initiative

Our public lands and waters are an American birthright and are the foundation of America’s $887 billion outdoor economy. President Trump recently signed an executive order that is a first step towards chopping up public lands and making them more vulnerable to development and mineral extraction. The executive order opens up 27 national monuments to the possibility of drilling, mining, and other private exploitation.

The Department of Interior has issued a preliminary report on Bears Ears National Monument, the first public land on the chopping block after the executive order. This report recommends shrinking the size of the monument by 95%. We have until July 10 to submit comments to Secretary Zinke in support of Bears Ears and 26 other national monuments. 

For more information on our efforts:

  • Read our op-ed to the Post and Courier about the act granting presidents the authority to designate national monuments.
  • Read our letter from sportsmen groups to the S.C. Congressional Delegation in support of public lands.
