The “America the Beautiful” initiative embraces locally led efforts to conserve and restore 30% of our lands and waters by 2030. Conserving habitats like wetlands, forests and coral reefs will not only help wildlife, but also bolster climate resilience and access to nature.

Don’t fight winter — embrace it! The Aurora Borealis are best seen this time of year when nights are long. The dark skies above @DenaliNPS are an excellent place to see the auroras because of its location and minimal light pollution. Photo by Anthony Adams
159 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln delivered his immortal "Gettysburg Address" and renewed the effort to reunite a war-torn nation. @GettysburgNMP helps tell the story and honors the “final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.”
The @USIndianAffairs Missing & Murdered Unit assists Tribal communities with investigations and provides resources to prioritize these cases to ensure that the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous peoples is addressed.
Red Shawl Day is a day to remember and honor the missing and murdered Indigenous peoples crisis. The color red is worn to draw attention to the horrible acts of violence that have disproportionately affected Indigenous communities, particularly women and children.

"A national trail is a gateway into nature’s secret beauties, a portal to the past, a way into solitude and community. It is also an inroad to our national character. Our trails are both irresistible and indispensable." —Stewart Lee Udall, Secretary of the Interior (1961–69)

This week marks the 1st anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. We’ll be sharing the work Interior has done over the past year to ensure future generations have clean air, drinkable water, fertile soil, and a quality of life that is threatened by the climate crisis.
Everyone can play a role in protecting our public lands and waters. Collecting all your belongings and properly disposing of trash or recycling helps minimize impacts and ensures that the next generation will continue to make lasting memories at these special places.
Earlier this year, @SecDebHaaland announced that we will phase out single-use plastic products — like plastic bottles and disposable plastic bags — on public lands by 2032.
Less than 10% of the plastic trash ever produced has been recycled. As stewards of our public lands and waters, Interior plays a leading role in reducing the impacts of plastic waste on our ecosystems and our climate. 🧵 Photo by@NOAADebrissv
You can easily recognize the teddy bear cholla — the star of @JoshuaTreeNPS’ Cholla Cactus Garden — by its densely interlaced yellow spines. Segments of their spines will latch on the slightest touch, giving these cacti the nickname “jumping cholla.” Photo by David Olsen
Resources from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law are accelerating @USGS' efforts to modernize the nation's critical mineral maps and secure a reliable and sustainable supply of these minerals essential for powering our clean energy future. Learn more:…
Critical minerals power everything from appliances and phones to clean energy technologies like batteries, electric vehicles and wind turbines.

With the completion of this fish passage project, Pacific salmon, Dolly Varden and coastal cutthroat trout are now free from migration barriers while supporting the local economy. Learn how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is restoring entire watersheds:…
Out: failing fish barrier culverts at hazardous stream crossings In: safe, barrier-free bridges that are a win for people, fish and the environment Fish play a vital role in Southeast Alaska's ecosystems and are a valuable commercial, recreational and subsistence resource.
Short-eared owls are tough, with bright yellow eyes staring out from their pale facial disks. Found in many places across the U.S. throughout the winter, these owls are often seen flying low over the ground before dropping on prey. Photo by Lynne McClure
There is no shortage of wildlife to observe at Laguna Atascosa. The endangered ocelot silently hunts within the brushlands, white-tailed deer browse on a banquet of plants and nearly half of all the bird species in the continental U.S. visit this refuge. Photo by Steve Sinclair
Interior is proud to offer this lifetime pass to demonstrate our immense gratitude and respect for those who have served and defended our country.
Our public lands offer recreation, connection, healing and remembrance. A new, free lifetime pass to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas is now available for veterans of the U.S. Armed Services and Gold Star Families.
As we look ahead to Veterans Day, I’m thrilled that @Interior was included in the @MilitaryTimes Best for Vets list! The veterans who work at our department contribute valuable skills to our mission and I couldn’t be prouder to work alongside them.
