Public Lands

    Preserving our natural heritage

    Earthrise Law Center helps its clients monitor how government agencies manage and protect public lands. Public lands, including National Forests and the vast areas in eastern Oregon managed by the Bureau of Land Management, play an important role in the environment. They provide essential habitat for many wildlife species, contain watersheds that are critical for threatened salmonids and guarantee clean drinking water for many municipalities, and give people unique and unspoiled places to recreate and reconnect with nature.

    Earthrise’s work includes submitting comments on proposed actions on public lands and drafting administrative appeals of agency decisions that our clients believe will adversely impact their use of public lands or the resources found there. When necessary, Earthrise also files lawsuits challenging agency decisions that could irreparably harm our public lands and the life that depends on it.
