Malheur Militants Are a Threat to America’s Public Lands

Over the past month, many people have asked me whether the illegal takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon has an impact on conservation. Read More

    • @conservationlandsfoundation (CLF) is working to convince President Obama to protect millions of acres using national monument designations before he leaves office in 2017. One of the important landscapes under consideration is the Owyhee Canyonlands in Eastern Oregon. At 2.5 million acres of wild lands and hundreds of miles of Wild & Scenic rivers, Oregon's Owyhee Canyonlands represents one of the largest conservation opportunities remaining in the lower 48 states. We are proud to fund this important project. #BLM #CLF #MonumentsForAll

The Emerald Mile: Grand Canyon, Adventure, and Threats to Our National Parks
A Presentation by Author Kevin Fedarko 
Kevin Fedarko is author of New York Times bestseller, The Emerald Mile, which recounts the story of the record-setting speed run through Grand Canyon in a small wooden dory during the largest flood to sweep the Colorado River in generations. Fedarko’s presentation will cover geology, hydrology, the history of American exploration, and the art of rowing extreme whitewater deep inside the Grand Canyon. With a nod to the centennial of the National Park Service, Fedarko will also talk about threats to our National Parks, and what we can do to renew our commitment to the crown jewels of the American landscape.

    • Serena was so excited for Outdoor Retailer Winter Market that she rode her mountain bike all the way to Utah. Arriving ahead of schedule, she skinned to the top of Gobblers Knob to enjoy the view.
Okay, Serena didn’t actually ride her bike to Utah. John and Josie wouldn’t let her. See you in Salt Lake City!

    • America’s best conservation program just got revived! Congress is set to reauthorize the Land Water Conservation Fund (#LWCF) for three years at $450 million.  While there is still work to be done to get LWCF permanently reauthorized, this is great news for anyone who likes to hike, ski, climb, mountain bike and play in the outdoors.
