Western Lands Update

The only newsletter in the country that deals with federal land exchanges and the sundry projects hacking away at our precious public domain. You can browse our most recent issue, as well as our archive of past issues, by visiting the main newsletter page.

Position Papers

On occasion we find a particular public lands issue that has gone unaddressed, or a disturbing new method by which public lands are removed from the public domain, or a particular land trade that generates a lot of interest. When we do, we'll write up our analysis of the situation and put it here.
