Supporting Public Lands
Currently the BLM is allowing large portions of it's land to be opened up for mining and oil and gas. Many nonprofits and NGO agencies have been working hard to protect these places. I found this article today from Outside magazine by AC Shilton on craft breweries finding clever ways to support these agencies. Now you can buy a craft beer from Highlander called the Public Lands Owner and support a nonprofit or NGO just through your purchase. I like their effort but still feel the only way to truly support public lands from being pillaged is by sharing your voice with your local representatives, get out there and enjoy the lands and participate in groups that protect them. Any little thing helps though. The article also mentioned other beer companies efforts to support public lands groups, check them out and help support today.
