Speak Up for The Land and Water Conservation Fund

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has been protecting our wild places since 1965.  Now, with Congress back in session, the time is right to voice support for permanent funding for the LWCF.

Via The Nature Conservancy:

Support legislation now before the U.S. Senate that guarantees permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund — the U.S. government’s key program for protecting land and water…

The program is authorized to receive up to $900 million a year. But despite an increase in energy production, funding for land and water protection has been low and unpredictable — diverted elsewhere by Congress…

Some of America’s most important natural areas are supported by the Fund:

  • National parks and forests such as the Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest
  • Working farms and ranches
  • Fish and wildlife refuges
  • Neighborhood parks
  • Beaches and land around rivers and lakes.

And the program also benefits people — through ensuring clean water supplies, supporting jobs, reducing the cost of firefighting, and protecting the great outdoors for wildlife and recreation.

Let your Senator know you support legislation for land and water conservation.
