About Us

The Keep Public Lands in Public Hands campaign is a grassroots effort, started by volunteers with the Utah Chapter of the Sierra Club, to keep our public lands safe for the well-being and enjoyment of all Americans.  We believe that the effort of certain Utah politicians — aided and abetted by the entrenched and well-heeled special interests of the oil/gas industry and the motorized recreation lobby — is a mis-guided ploy to privatize, commoditize, and industrialize our public lands. Our goal is to inform Utahns about the threat of the Legislature’s attempt to seize our public lands and to demonstrate that our land should remain in the hands of all Americans.
