Scenic America has helped stop new billboard construction and other blight in hundreds of communities nationwide.
Protecting and promoting scenic byways
Scenic America led the way in Congress to revive the National Scenic Byways Program and to secure funding for our most scenic roadways.
Championing Scenic Communities
From utility undergrounding to tree conservation to responsible development, we help communities protect their unique qualities.

Supporting Scenic BywaysThe FY23 Appropriations Act includes the highest funding level for byways in more than a decade, but more resources are needed in FY24 and beyond.
Making Undergrounding More AccessibleThanks to our advocacy, FEMA funding can now support undergrounding, and a new federal grant program is making more resources available.
Celebrating Community CharacterWe believe in protecting, enhancing, and celebrating the unique qualities of our towns and cities.
