"On Common Ground" tells the real stories of individuals whose lives have been shaped by our public lands. Taken together, these stories remind us of all that we stand to lose if we sell, pollute, privatize or otherwise destroy the literal common ground we share as Americans.

Every American shares ownership of a remarkable system of public lands that covers nearly one third of our country, or about 618 million acres. These lands are managed for us by the federal government as National Parks, Forests, Wildlife Refuges, Historic Sites, Monuments and other designations reflecting the special character of each place.
