Americans share ownership of approximately 600 million acres of land and water in the United States. These "public lands" include federal designations like national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, and monuments, as well as state and local areas owned by the public.
Take action to safeguard our national monuments. Visit www.nwf.org/monuments to learn more.
These often spectacular places are managed by many different federal agencies for a wide variety of purposes, but the Department of the Interior and the Department of Agriculture bear most of the management responsibility. The National Wildlife Federation is committed to safeguarding these special places and other landscapes that provide habitat for wildlife and opportunities for people to recreate and reconnect with nature. Our staff works to preserve these areas for the wildlife and people who depend on them through several different campaigns and initiatives.
