Protecting America's Public Lands & Diverse Outdoor Heritage
America’s public lands and waters are among our greatest assets. Our national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, monuments, conservation areas, and public lands power local economies, provide clean air and water, protect our cultural heritage, and help define who we are as a country. As a mayor and as a veteran, Pete deeply appreciates the value of the outdoors to support healthy communities and sustainable economies and to bring us together as Americans in a place of refuge, reflection, and healing.
Public lands and waters also offer a path forward to fight the climate and nature crises that threaten our economy, national security, and natural systems. To ensure health, security, and prosperity for all Americans, we need a new equitable vision for conservation–one that benefits every community.
As President, Pete will work to combat the climate crisis and protect our nation’s land, water, and wildlife for future generations.
