Happy New Year from the Western Values Project

We’ve had a hand in some big victories in 2015. From establishing a smart-from-the-start planning process in Moab, Utah, to protecting both the Greater sage-grouse and western economies, to extending the life of America’s best parks program, we’ve seen a lot of accomplishments for the West. We’ve also supported more and more westerners as they add their voice to the ongoing conversation over a balanced approach to energy development and other uses on public lands.

Here are just a few of the major wins for westerners in 2015:

Of course, there’s still work to be done. We still need to bring a strong BLM rule against natural gas waste across the finish line. Every year taxpayers are losing out on millions in revenue thanks to the venting and  flaring of natural gas and polls show Westerners support expect leaders in Washington to take action on this issue. We’ll be working hard to make sure that happens.

We look forward to new challenges and victories in 2016!

Join the effort to strengthen the American West.
