Why Public Lands Matter

Public lands — how they are managed and how they are used — matter.  Public Lands are critical to the conservation of fish and wildlife habitat, watersheds, cultural resources, and antiquities.  They’re a critical source of outdoor recreation such as hiking, fishing, and hunting.  They are also an important economic engine driving traditional resource use, tourism, and the dollars brought to the states in which public lands reside.

This conference is designed to look at current public lands management practices, the various voices in support and dissent, and potential stakeholder collaboration toward forward-looking best practices designed to manage, protect, and preserve our public lands for the generations to follow.
