Public Lands in US
« on: April 11, 2017, 12:24:00 AM »
Growing up I've always had access to private lands and never concerned myself with public lands. However, the older I get the more I have come to enjoy tapping into public land. It's become a burden on my heart to do something to help preserve. I hear and see all kinds or articles about how public lands are endangered and we must fight to preserve them... I want to do my part but I'm not 100% how to get involved.. any advice/suggestions? I live in TX so those lands are near to me heart if anyone has info regarding them specifically.

I think this is a good starting place for your research.

You may also look at creating a community group on a specific piece of land -- a facebook page or something small can help you reach out to see if there's any interest among others in your community.  Working with adjacent landowners could also be beneficial since they have a vested interest in how the property is used in the future.  Make some friends in the local government agency that manages the property (county, state, etc.).  Follow the broken-window theory -- if people see that others care about the place (fix broken windows or, in this case, pick up trash & such), they're more likely to respect its condition.  Just some ideas.
