Money Trails

Follow the trails of special interest influence on our public lands.

Money Trails was created by Western Values Project — an Accountable.US project based in Montana, defending America’s public lands — to document the influence that special interest groups, industry executives, and anti-public lands front groups exert on public lands issues and policy throughout the West.

Money Trails provides research on anti-public land front groups’ influence on public lands, public officials, and public policy, with a focus on Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah. Money Trails seeks to expose conflicts of interest and connections between anti-public lands groups, state and federal lawmakers, and public lands policy.

The depth and breadth of influence that special interest groups have on America’s public lands run wide and deep. Money Trails is intended to be a resource for the public and policymakers alike in our collective pursuit to expose corruption, combat attacks on our public lands, and protect America’s outdoor heritage. 

The public deserves to know how these groups are attempting to affect public land decisions to benefit corporations and monied special interests. Contact us below if you have information on special interest influence or anti-public lands front groups in your state.
