Federal public lands are managed by the government on behalf of all Americans. Some of our public lands are appropriate for energy production and other industrial development, but others should instead be prioritized for values like recreation, hunting and fishing, clean air, clean drinking water, and their role in our quality of life.

The Center for American Progress in partnership with the Sierra Club undertook a series of video mini-documentaries that revealed three places held in the public trust that could be threatened by pending proposals to mine and drill in or around them. Grand Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Bridger-Teton National Forest may all be irrevocably changed if various companies' plans to move forward with their extraction projects are approved.

The project, "Public Lands, Private Profits," will launch July 10, 2012. Go to http://www.americanprogress.org to learn more.
