'As conservatives, protect the land'

Print Article

Aldo Leopold said it best; "There are those of us who can live without wild things and some who cannot - for us in the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than television, and the chance to find a pasque-flower is a right as inalienable as free speech."

We live for the fresh air, stargazing, and the beautiful lands God has created for us. It just makes sense that we do our best to protect these lands.

It's natural as conservatives that we step up and conserve the environment. It's who we are, we want to protect what we care about most, whether it's our money we make every day, our families' way of life, or the land we walk on; we conserve it. Now more than ever, it is necessary for conservatives and Republicans alike to take a stand for the environment.

The American Conservation Coalition has already begun the journey to tackle Conservative Environmentalism, which follows a long tradition of support from Teddy Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan. We are proud to consider ourselves stewards of the land and supporters of our environment's best interests. We support policies that make sense locally, and federally. As an organization, we look to shape the conversation around the power of the free market.  

For too long, one side of the aisle has dominated these issues. As an organization, the ACC is prepared to defend and promote the benefits of a conservative environmental policy. Visit acc.eco and begin your journey locally to help the environment.
