Margaret Byfield serves as the Executive Director of American Stewards of Liberty (ASL), a role she has embraced with over 30 years of experience in natural resource policy. Her journey began on Pine Creek Ranch in Central Nevada, where her family became embroiled in a 27-year legal battle, Hage v. United States, after being targeted by radical environmental agendas.
Margaret works closely with policy leaders at local, state, and federal levels to advance strategies that safeguard the production of America’s essential resources—food, fiber, minerals, and energy. She spearheads the national “Property Rights Task Force” and the “Multiple-Use Alliance,” initiatives aimed at confronting and mitigating the erosion of property rights in America.
As a national speaker, writer, and commentator, Margaret is a leading voice on property rights issues. Her work is instrumental in shaping policies that not only protect individual rights but also serve the broader interests of resource management and sustainable development.
