ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT PUBLIC LAND CLOSURES
- The anti-access groups and so-called environmentalists use their vast resources to lock you out and get areas you like to use closed.
- Management agencies use closures to avoid dealing with enforcing rules evenly and effectively — management by closure.
The following organizations work to represent you to keep public lands open and accessible to everyone. They often lack the resources needed to fight for you. You may have not known that they are advocating for you. They desperately need your support.
Pick one or more of these organizations and support them, so they can have the resources they need to keep up the fight. It’s simple and easy and you can make a difference.
Thank you; your help is invaluable.
