Challenges and Solutions to Improve Federal Lands Management

The Federal government owns 640 million acres of land and hundreds of thousands more in mineral rights below it. These lands are full of potential – natural resources, recreation, and wildlife habitat among them – and routinely involve tough management decisions. How these lands are managed and maintained is controversial, reaching even basic, fundamental questions of ownership and goals. For many Americans west of the Mississippi, such questions have a direct impact on livelihoods and quality of life. For all Americans, they have implications for where and how to use tax dollars, whether in collecting revenues or dealing with maintenance backlogs. Please join The Heritage Foundation and the Property and Environment Research Center for a robust conversation on where federal land management policy is going and creative policy ideas for the future. Reception to follow.
