Our coalition chair, Roberto Morales, spoke to the Mercury News for a story on the Senate passing the Great American Outdoors Act and how many people have rediscovered the value of parks and open space during the pandemic.
Celebrating victories like this helps motivate us to continue to push for more actions to protect our public lands and connect our communities to nature. The need has never been greater for improved visitor services, access to nature for our diverse urban population, and expanded natural resource protection. Still to pass in the Senate: the Protecting Unique and Beautiful Landscapes by Investing in California (PUBLIC) Lands Act. Sign our letter in support of this legislation and help us spread the word.
