Today, President Trump announced he would pull out of the United States’ commitments to address global climate change. Jamie Williams, president and CEO of The Wilderness Society said:

This organization works to protect the places people care about and to create close-to-home parks and wild spaces—particularly in and near cities, where 80 percent of Americans live.

They also work to conserve working farms, ranches, and forests; lands of historical and cultural importance; rivers, streams, coasts, and watersheds; and other special places where people can experience nature close at hand.

In small towns like Sand Point, Idaho, and Milan, New Hampshire, they empowered neighbors to protect the forests, streams, and trails that sustain local economies. And in cities from New York to San Francisco, they built parks and playgrounds that help people stay happier and healthier—while meeting the challenges of climate change head-on.
