In response to threats to privatize public lands and rescind conservation laws, The North Face and our friends at Patagonia are each committing an additional $100,000 annually to The Conservation Alliance. We stand together on this because we believe – in the words of Edward Abbey – “wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit.” Funds will go toward education, advocacy, and a newly established Public Lands Defense Fund which gives grants to nonprofits working to defend public lands. #ProtectOurPublicLands
