BREAKING: A new proposal from an industry-aligned committee of the National Park Service would pave the way for privatizing our public lands by leasing national park campgrounds. Speak up to stop them!
Our national parks are meant to be enjoyed by all. Yet the Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee -- a lobbyist-loaded advisory committee created by disgraced former Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke -- is attempting to sell off our park campgrounds to the highest bidder. Take action now!
They've proposed a plan to lease public campgrounds to private entities and open up sites for commercialized services, such as WiFi and food trucks, while increasing fees and limiting discounts for seniors.
This would pad the pockets of companies cozy with the Trump administration at the expense of families and individuals looking to visit our most beautiful spaces.
These corporations aren't in the campground management business for the public good -- they're in it to make a profit.
The proposal would most directly benefit private campground companies such as KOA and Delaware North, the latter of which recently hired the lobbying firm that current Secretary of the Interior, David Bernhardt, worked for and is owned by Trump donor Jeremy Jacobs. If these companies get their way, we could see our most cherished natural spaces turned into playgrounds for the wealthy.
We must keep our public lands accessible and affordable for all. Demand the Department of the Interior and National Park Service reject this proposal!
