Avid mountain climber Jason Momoa has a message of support for Access Fund, a certified land trust which advocates for climbers at the local and national levels, and maintains active Memorandums of Understanding with the National Park Service, US Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management. Right now a group of generous donors are matching all donations to Access Fund, up to $75,000, to help protect climbing spaces across the country.
From Jason’s message on the Access Funds website:
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and standing strong during these troubling times. There are a lot of causes right now that deserve our attention. But I’m writing to you today as a fellow member of our crazy, beautiful climbing community—because threats to public lands are heating up and endangering climbing areas across the country.
Right now, we have a powerful opportunity to double down in the fight to defend our climbing areas. A group of generous donors are matching all donations to Access Fund, up to $75,000, to help protect our special places. Will you join me by becoming an Access Fund member today?
Our friends at Access Fund have their eye on the ball. They are working hard to put a stop to dangerous policy changes that would fast-track industrial development on public lands, at the expense of recreation and the environment. These policy changes would drastically limit our voice in how these special places are managed and developed. Climbing gives us so much, and now it needs us to step up and fight for it.
Founded in 1991, Access Fund represents millions of climbers nationwide in all forms of climbing: rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, and bouldering. Six core programs support our mission on national and local levels:
- Climbing policy and advocacy
- Stewardship and conservation
- Local support and mobilization
- Land acquisition and protection
- Risk management and landowner support
