Support the PUBLIC Lands Act
September 2020 update: The House version of the bill has already been passed but the Senate bill, introduced by Senator Harris and Senator Feinstein, has stalled. With Senator Harris now running for Vice President, help us encourage the House of Representatives to continue championing and take leadership of the issue.
Protect California’s public lands and support the outdoor recreation economy
Fish. Water. People. Since 1971, California Trout has been working to ensure resilient wild fish thrive in healthy waters. From our inception, CalTrout lead the Wild Trout Program and played an instrumental role in forming the California Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. We are now asking our members to help protect our natural landscapes by telling Congress to pass the PUBLIC Lands Act.
U.S. Senators Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in February 2020 introduced the Protecting Unique and Beautiful Landscapes by Investing in California (PUBLIC) Lands Act, a package of three previously introduced bills that would increase protections and access for over 1 million acres of California lands, including nearly 600,000 acres of new wilderness and over 100,000 acres of new national monument.
Send a letter to urge your House Representative to show leadership in supporting the protection of these important California landscapes.
