The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has protected millions of acres in nearly every county in the U.S. — at NO COST to taxpayers. But year after year Congress diverts and delays funding for this vital program, leaving conservation efforts across the country that rely on it in jeopardy. At the same time, growing maintenance backlogs that threaten to mar our beloved national parks continue to pile up because of their own insufficient funding.
We need Congress to vote yes on the Great American Outdoors Act which fully — and permanently — funds LWCF and restores our parks now! A critical vote is make-or-break for our lands. Or else the urgent conservation that relies on this funding will continue to be stuck in limbo year after year.
Call on Congress to pass the Great American Outdoors Act, which includes full and permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and protects our parks now. The clock is ticking to get it done ASAP. Make your voice heard!
America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Make your voice heard to help.
We can’t protect our nation’s clean air, water and natural places unless we preserve critical conservation funding.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
Vote Yes on Great American Outdoors Act
With threats to nature rapidly increasing, it is especially critical to vote yes on the Great American Outdoors Act, which fully and permanently funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and restores our parks immediately. We cannot afford to put essential lands and waters in jeopardy.LWCF is one of America's most important and successful conservation programs, benefiting every state in the nation. It has a 50-year track record of helping provide clean water, conserve natural resources, increase recreation opportunities, expand public access and support communities. At the same time, years of underfunding has also deteriorated many of our most treasured national parks. Vital lands and waters are in danger every day LWCF continues to be underfunded and our parks are neglected. I ask you to vote yes on the Great American Outdoors Act, which fully and permanently funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and protects our national parks. Please support all action to get this done right away.
