Public Lands Foundation

Search Bar

As a member, you can help counter the misguided attempts in State legislatures, Congress, and by non-government organizations to “take back the public lands.” These attempts are an attack on our heritage and values of retaining the public lands for the use and enjoyment of all Americans.

PLF influences public policy related to the public lands and provides information to legislators.

Your membership in the PLF supports our efforts in advocating and working for the retention of America’s National Public Lands under public ownership.

Additional benefits and activities include:

  • Quarterly newsletter—The Public Lands Monitor.
  • Receive the Register of BLM Retirees with their addresses.
  • ”Remembering BLM” Facebook page to help facilitate contacts and communications between BLM retirees and other members.
  • Contribute to the PLF Archives, a collection of historical materials related to BLM-administered lands and its people.
  • Annual meetings to analyze National System of Public Lands issues.
  • Biennial Student Congress and annual scholarships to college students.

Membership in the PLF is open to anyone interested in supporting quality management of America’s National System of Public Lands. There are two options for payment: (1) pay online with a credit card using PayPal, or (2) pay with a check by mail.
