Discussion to Focus on Status of American Conservation in 2012
Washington, D.C. – On July 11, CAP will premiere “Public Lands, Private Profits,” a series of mini-documentaries about three areas hel
d in the public trust that raise questions about where industrial development of our lands may take place, and where it is not appropriate. Some of the country’s best places like Yellowstone National Park and Muir Woods National Monument have already been preserved for future generations to enjoy, but others remain without protection.
Participants in this event will discuss how conservation fits into an overall progressive approach to land management and how Congress, President Barack Obama, and the next administration can work to make sure that our matchless American icons are truly protected from development and managed for values like hunting and fishing, recreation, clean air, and clean water.
