The Citizens’ Guide to Federal Land Exchanges: A Manual for Public Lands Advocates

Updated and expanded in 2001, our 100-page Citizens’ Guide provides all the information you need to understand how land exchanges work; what dangers they may pose to public lands; how to evaluate and understand an individual land trade proposal; and how to fight land swaps that don’t serve the public interest. Hard copy is $15 to cover printing and postage; PDF is free.
