Are Your Public Lands Being Stolen Behind Your Back?

By Gareth Martins July 21, 2015

Attempts to sell off or transfer our public lands to states, special interests or the highest bidder are mounting. While more and more states are exploring this ill-conceived idea, outdoor business leaders, sportsmen, the conservation community and the entire outdoor industry are joining forces to fight back and protect public lands.

Here are a few ways you can become more informed on this issue during the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market:

What: Public Land Heist Roundtable – How State Takeover Threatens the Outdoor Industry

When: Wednesday, August 5th, 3:00–4:30 p.m.

What: Celebration of America’s Public Lands
