Step up now to preserve U.S. public lands

For Americans worried about where our environmental policies are headed, it’s important to remind ourselves that we have many important milestones to our credit. On March 1, 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant – a Republican – signed the bill that declared Yellowstone the world’s first national park, a vision of conservation that nearly every country now follows. A century later, on Dec. 28, 1973, President Richard Nixon – also a Republican – signed the Endangered Species Act into law.

This proud history of American environmental leadership means even more under the Trump administration, if only as a reminder that we know how to do better. Unfortunately, Trump has made a particular point of attacking our public lands, and he recently added a new milestone to the list that we will look back on with regret.
