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.
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.
Like hiking, biking, bears, trees, deer, camping, rafting, hunting, skiing, climbing, running or fishing? If you answered yes to any of the above, then you should support the National Conservation Lands and all the local non-profits working to protect them.
Over the next few weeks, and in celebration of their campaign Season of Service, National Conservation Lands will be raffling off more than 100 prizes from companies including: Patagonia, Moosejaw, Keen, Osprey Packs and Venture Snowboards. That’s about one winner per day, so your odds of winning are better than Vegas — and you’ll be protecting America’s wild lands to boot! So keep checking back to see the most recent giveaways.
Pick your favorite project, donate and win!
