Get involved with your local climber organizations
Most climbers are familiar with the Access Fund, a national non-profit advocacy group that works to keep climbing areas open and conserve existing climbing areas through conservation and stewardship. They support all forms of climbing and work on both the national and local level.
Learn more at their website, accessfund.org and get involved on a local level.
