Take action now to RECLAIM, REPAIR, and RESTORE public lands!
Yellowstone. Arches. Zion. Acadia. Shenandoah. Merely saying the names of America's iconic national parks stirs something deep inside us, reminding us how proud — and protective — we are of our nation's natural treasures.
Many Americans also think that once a national park is created, every acre of it is publicly owned and therefore permanently protected. That, however, is not the case. Countless acres of land around — and even inside — our national parks are privately owned.
While many landowners are good stewards who love our national parks, forests, and recreation areas as much as you and I do, privately owned land can divide parks and people in profound ways.
That's why, since 1972, The Trust for Public Land has worked to secure private land in and near national parks and add it to park boundaries. Together with Americans like you, we have protected and put into public ownership more than 3.7 million acres of land and completed more than 5,400 park and conservation projects.
But as the stress on our national parks has grown, especially in recent years, so has the need for support from Americans like you.
Take action today to tell President Biden that you support efforts to protect and connect our national parks, monuments, forests, recreation areas, wilderness areas, greenways, and community parks.

RE: Reclaim, Repair, and Restore Public Lands
Like the majority of Americans, regardless of political affiliation, I care deeply about our public lands, and I pledge my support to protect and connect our iconic national parks and monuments, forests, and seashores. Public lands and parks unite us, and access to parks and open space is a fundamental right of every American. Please know that I am one of the American people who are coming together to ask you to reclaim, repair, and restore our natural areas for people now and for generations to come, and ensure that our public lands are kept in public hands.
