The far-reaching America’s Great Outdoors (AGO) Report, released on February 16th, synthesizes input from a national conversation that got Americans talking about the places they love and how they want to work together to protect them.
Our public lands, the heritage of all Americans, face many challenges - climate change, air and water pollution, urban sprawl, and loss of open space. Policymakers on both sides of the aisle can take direction from the nation’s collective wisdom as they look to reshape U.S. conservation policy.
Through meetings and online forums, the initiative delivered timely feedback from communities, as we look to strengthen American conservation values that will make our country stronger, healthier, and more prosperous.
Two of the conservation tools supported in the report have stood the test of time as effective and bipartisan – the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and the Antiquities Act.
