Access to nature is fundamental to human health and happiness. We envision a future where communities across the country are connected to their public lands.
Through our Native Lands program, we have worked with more than 70 tribes and Indigenous groups to protect more than 200,000 acres from California to Washington to Hawai’i, restoring ancient sites and landscapes of cultural importance in partnership with tribal communities. Learn More.
We worked with partners and congressional champions to ensure the passage of one of the most powerful conservation statutes of all time in 2020. The Great American Outdoors Act provides over $9 billion to address the maintenance backlog on federal lands and $990 million annually to permanently support the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).
