A Nonprofit Advocating For Creatives

Public Land Creatives advocates for equal, fair, and unbiased access to create and recreate on our nation’s beautiful public lands.

Public Lands

Public Lands Are For Everyone.

“There is nothing so American as our national parks…. The fundamental idea behind the parks…is that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us.”

— Radio Address from President Franklin D. Roosevelt at Two Medicine Chalet, Glacier National Park (August 5, 1934)

Our Mission Here at Public Land Creatives

Public Land Creatives is a non-profit organization that advocates for equal, fair, and unbiased access to create and recreate on our nation’s public lands. Rooted in the freedom of expression, our group defends the rights of photographers, videographers, creators, and all persons wishing to document their lives in National Parks, BLM lands, National Forests, and other public lands.  As committed conservationists in the pursuit of shared stewardship, we practice and promote the use of outdoor recreational ethics. We support common sense measures designed to both protect these wild spaces we love and uphold our right to capture our enjoyment of them.
