The Trust for Public Land Response to Governor Newsom’s Executive Order to Fight Climate Change

We applaud Governor Newsom’s efforts to fight the climate crisis in California. We know that protecting land is an important tool in reducing carbon emissions and are buoyed by the Governor’s announcement to protect 30% of the state’s land and water by 2030 as part of these efforts. We’re committed to working with the Governor and Legislature to prioritize funding to protect some of the state’s most special places while creating outdoor access for all.
