Conservatives for Responsible Stewardship (CRS) is a national nonprofit grassroots organization founded on the premise that environmental stewardship and natural resource conservation are inherently conservative, and that true conservatives endeavor to be good stewards of the natural systems and resources that sustain life on earth.
Safeguarding our air and water, our public lands, our wetlands and wildlife is, as Ronald Reagan accurately pointed out, “our great moral responsibility.” When conservatives fail to engage and take this obligation seriously, the solutions proposed come entirely from the left.
America’s most enduring environmental protections have been shaped by conservative ideas. That same kind of stewardship is needed today. Help us put the CONSERVE back in conservatism!

The current administration’s rush to offer vast swaths of our public lands to oil and gas companies—irrespective of their potential to actually produce either oil or gas—is both unprecedented and unwise. Recently introduced legislation (S.3202) would restore much needed balance to our federal oil and gas leasing program.
The Trump administration’s recent move to revoke California’s ability to set tougher emissions standards for cars sold in the state is not aimed at rolling back Obama policy, it seeks to reverse a waiver that then governor Ronald Reagan secured for the state more than 50 years ago.
