Unmatched in their beauty, America’s 640 million acres of public lands are home and refuge to hundreds of Native Americans communities, nature lovers, and some the only functioning ecosystems left untouched in the U.S. But these national treasures are in danger. As powerful forces threaten to seize incredible parks from Utah to Alaska for their stores of oil, gas, uranium and copper, it’s time to fight back. Executive produced by Robert Redford and featuring acclaimed outdoor journalist Hal Herring, Public Trust is a much-needed wake-up call to all of us who want to preserve our natural heritage.
