The 30 by 30 plan is the federal push to conserve 30% of U.S. lands and waters by the year 2030. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, right now about 12% of the land in the U.S. is in conservation.
Within the next 10 years, the federal government hopes to transition nearly 440 million acres into federal protection. This would mean that a landform around the size of Texas must be a part of a conservation plan by 2030.
What does this mean for farmers?
