America’s national parks should be protected, not shortchanged

From the Grand Canyon to the George Washington National Forest, our parks, forests, and public lands are a big part of what makes this country so great. They’re where we go to spend time outdoors with our families and friends, to hike, bike, fish and see wild animals.

Pollution, logging, overdevelopment

Yet instead of helping to protect and preserve our parks and other special places for our kids and future generations, some shortsighted leaders in Congress have another idea. They’ve proposed to stop new protections for precious landscapes like the Grand Canyon. They want to eliminate funding for our most successful open space program. And the Senate has even passed a measure to sell off a bulk of our public landsfrom national forests, to wildlife refuges, to wilderness areasto the highest bidder.

A lasting legacy

Environment America is bringing people together to urge our members of Congress to make preserving special places a priority and leave a lasting legacy for our parks.

Together, we can win

Members and supporters like you make it possible for our staff to conduct research, make our case to the media, testify in Washington, D.C., and build the grassroots support necessary to protect the places we love.
