Western Land Exchange Project

The Western Lands Project was originally created as the Western Land Exchange Project to monitor federal land exchanges and promote reform in related federal policies. By necessity, the organization's mission has expanded to include scrutiny of the myriad efforts that are under way to privatize public lands. The organizations goal is to keep public lands public. The organization monitors federal land exchanges, sales, and giveaways and any project that would cede public control of land to non-federal entities.
