Saving the Range of Light
A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT TO UNITE YOSEMITE & KINGS CANYON
We are a grassroots organization, built from the ground up. A 501c3 non-profit since 2017, our immediate goal is to protect the federal land between Yosemite and Kings Canyon National Parks by creating the Range of Light National Monument. We support conservation throughout California and the nation.
Our mission is to extend nature's reach. We believe that access to nature, care for wildlife, and clean air and pure water are fundamental human rights and an important part of national and international policies. Our primary focus is on the Sierra Nevada and California, where we support landscape-wide protections.
We run a comprehensive set of projects that support the preservation and restoration of the natural world. People are central to achieving lasting protections. We organize grassroots movements, train activists, perform policy research, work with scientists and legislators, and introduce the outdoors to people.
Unite the Parks is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Founded in 2013 as a fiscally-sponsored project; we became an independent organization in 2017. We are working to save our public land and forest for wildlife and people. We support the connection of parks and trails throughout California and the nation, as a shared source health, wealth and happiness.
