[ Save Our Public Lands ]

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park

This month the 1thing highlights the Trust for Public Lands.

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.  Their goal is to ensure that every child has easy access to a safe place to play in nature. 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 2016, the Trust for Public Lands  saved threatened land for national parks including Yosemite, Rocky Mountain, and Saguaro. 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.
