Sierra Club Presents Vision for Managing America's Great Outdoors

The Sierra Club has presented the Obama administration with a vision for how America's outdoors should be managed as they face the threats of climate change. The report comes in response to the administration launching the America's Great Outdoors initiative in the spring of 2010, where President Obama stated that our country needs a "21st century strategy for America's great outdoors, to better protect our natural landscape and our history for generations to come." Listening sessions have been held across the country to give Americans an opportunity to weigh in on the future of our wildlife and wild places. As part of that process, the Sierra Club presented Ago-reportleaders with a report titled: Protecting America's Great Outdoors from Climate Change: Sierra Club's Vision.

Our country's public lands face an increasing array of threats including climate change, habitat fragmentation, and a growing disconnect between Americans and the outdoors. This report highlights priorities such as protecting public and working lands, and reconnecting Americans, especially young people, with the outdoors. The Sierra Club hopes this report will confront and help solve the serious challenges posed by climate change, to our lands, landscapes, and habitats.
