About Us

Our nation’s scenic beauty is at risk

Throughout the country, our most cherished scenic resources and hometown assets are being obscured by a blizzard of monstrous billboards, badly sited telecommunications towers, a tangle of overhead lines, and a hodgepodge of visual clutter.

America’s beauty and community character are being obliterated by a steel curtain of visual spam.


There are more than 439,000 billboard faces in the U.S.


20% are nonpermitted, nonconforming, or illegally modified.
