Take Action Tuesday: Support Sally Jewell for Interior Secretary

March 05, 2013 by Serena Bishop

We are thrilled that President Obama has nominated REI CEO Sally Jewell to be the next Interior Secretary.  When confirmed by the Senate, Sally will oversee the department of the Interior which manages all Park Service, BLM, and US Fish and Wildlife Service lands, totaling 507 million acres or 20 percent of the US land mass.  In addition to setting conservation priorities for these lands, the Interior Department manages energy projects on federal lands and offshore areas that supply 28 percent of the nation's energy production.

Sally's Senate confirmation hearing will be held on Thursday, March 7th, at 10AM EST.
