Senator Mike Lee of Utah Wants To Turn Your Public Land Into Housing Projects

Senator plans on dismantling your public lands piece by piece

Part of our mission here at basin + bend is to keep you up to date with conservation related issues and show you how you can stay involved to protect what you love.

Yesterday was the 4th of July. How many of you spent at least part of your day on public lands? We certainly did, and we're guessing quite a few of you did too.

Last week U.S. Senator and reputed short-lister for the Supreme Court nomination, Mike Lee, outlined a three-part plan to privatize your public lands. As he explained in this tweet, his plan is simple: sell off the public lands that give you unparalleled opportunities to not only hunt and fish, but to also climb, mountain bike, trail run, kayak, 4-wheel, and any other recreational activity you enjoy on YOUR 640 million remaining acres.

We hope you'll stand with us and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers in taking action to make sure the recent bills proposed by Sen. Mike Lee do not get traction and become a reality.

Thank you for joining the fight to #keepitpublic!
