Dear Devon,
America’s public lands provide habitat for fish and wildlife, clean water,
climate change mitigation, and places for our families to hike, camp, hunt,
and fish. Unfortunately, the special places we love are under attack. The
ongoing standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge has emboldened
those who wish to privatize America’s National Parks, Forests, Monuments,
and other public lands. While those who are threatening violence at the
Malheur are grabbing headlines, their backers are working in Congress and
in state legislatures to dismantle America’s public lands system.
*Join Us in Bend on Tuesday, January 19th at noon to Stand Up for the
Malheur Wildlife Refuge and National Public Lands!
We’re going to be rallying for the refuge across the state to express our
appreciation for national public lands and their public servant caretakers.
While we don’t always agree with the Fish and Wildlife Service, Forest
Service, and Bureau of Land Management, we do so respectfully and legally,
not with guns and threats of violence. For more than a decade,
conservationists, ranchers, Native Americans, and public land managers have
worked together to restore the Malheur refuge. Now we need your help to
defend the progress that we’ve made, and the wildlife and wild places we
all hold dear.
*We care passionately about our public lands and natural heritage. Now is
the time to stand up for them!
Events are listed below, with details and more events across the state
currently being planned. If your community isn’t on the list, but you would
like to organize something, let us know
We’ll try to put you in touch with others who are looking for speak up.
However, due to the volatile situation at the Malheur National Wildlife
Refuge, rally supporters are strongly discouraged from gathering in Harney
County at this time.
