The Center for American Progress, in partnership with the Sierra Club, undertook a series of video mini-documentaries that revealed three places held in the public trust that could be threatened by pending proposals to mine and drill in or around them. Grand Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Bridger-Teton National Forest may all be irrevocably changed if various companies’ plans to move forward with their extraction projects are approved.
The series, "Public Lands, Private Profits," will launch July 10, 2012.
