The occupiers argue the federal government can’t manage public lands as well as state, counties or private entities. They’d even like to see the land transferred. But that’s a pretty big political fight and a move environmental and conservation groups oppose.

On the newest episode of “This Land Is Our Land,” we look at the ideological battle for American’s public lands.
