Public Access to Public Lands, Opportunities

Access to public land – everybody’s for it. But often, the solutions to landlocked or large blocks of public lands that are inaccessible to the public are complex. There are a host of state and federal programs that help acquire land that is mixed in with public land, or open easements to those lands. But in other cases, the solutions are more complex. 

Join a panel discussion that includes MWF staff and a board member, and a federal official to talk about an effort in the East Crazy Mountains to increase access, as well as other measures MWF is pursuing to help increase public access. Registration is required.
