Public Lands For The People
Public Lands For The People Inc.

Public Lands For The People Inc. (PLP) is a non profit organization established in 1990 to stop violations of the law by government land regulating agencies, and help protect the rights of the Citizens to use those lands. PLP was constructed for the purpose of representing all outdoor user groups and individuals that are interested in keeping public and private lands open to prospecting, mining, and outdoor recreation on a non-discriminatory basis! Public Lands for the People assists groups to join forces to maintain the laws and rights of all citizens on public and private lands (Federal, State and City). PLP will assist with representation at public hearings of government agencies that are proposing limitations and restrictions on the lands that belong to the people. PLP DOES LITIGATE! PLP will file injunctions, when necessary, to prevent governmental agencies from discussing public issues behind closed doors and calling them “personnel meetings.” PLP will come to the aid of, and give individual attention to, persons or groups who are being harassed, intimidated or mislead by people in authority (in or out of uniform) who are attempting to enforce their own ideas or opinions of laws, rules or regulations, rather than the actual laws, rules or regulations, and what it actually means.

Remember.... PUBLIC LANDS FOR THE PEOPLE Means....  
Our right to Use Public Lands, Not to Abuse Public Lands.

PLP fights these issues with financial support from memberships, donations and fund raising raffles. If you are a gold prospector or gold miner or metal detectionist who wants to get involved or just find out more about PLP, visit their website at
