STATEMENT BY THE TRUST FOR PUBLIC LAND ON PRESIDENT BIDEN’S EXECUTIVE ACTIONS

January 27, 2021
WASHINGTON

"We need bold action to protect people from the climate crisis, and we’re very encouraged by the Biden Administration’s actions today,” said Bill Lee, Senior VP of Policy, Advocacy and Government Relations at The Trust for Public Land. “From President Biden’s commitment to conserve 30% of the U.S. by 2030 to his call to create a Civilian Climate Corps to put a new generation of Americans to work conserving and restoring public lands and parks, this bold and inclusive vision for America's climate future marks a turning point for our country. These ambitious goals will help slow the loss of nature, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and ensure everybody in America — no matter their economic status, race, or ethnicity — have access to parks and green space."
