Without the Land and Water Conservation Fund, some of America’s most beloved public lands might not exist.
The Grand Canyon. Acadia National Park. Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Great Smokey Mountains National Park. LWCF was critical in protecting all these and more. And just last year, LWCF funds protected the entrance of Grand Teton National Park from development threats.
But despite its 52-year track record of success, Congress let LWCF run out on October 1. That's why we must push to renew LWCF right away!
With your support, we can continue to protect America’s greatest natural treasures—our public lands. Call on Congress to renew and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund before time runs out.
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. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
It's simple: we can't protect our nation's air, water and natural places unless we protect 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?
Renew the LWCF Right Away
With threats to nature and public lands rapidly increasing, it is especially critical to renew and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) immediately. Congress let LWCF run out on October 1, and we cannot afford to put essential conservation programs in jeopardy.LWCF is one of America's most important and successful conservation programs, benefiting every state in the nation. LWCF has a 50-year track record of helping provide clean water, conserve public lands and natural resources, increase recreation opportunities and support communities.Vital conservation work hangs in the balance every day we go without LWCF. Plus, renewing it won't cost taxpayers a penny because it's paid for with drilling revenues from oil and gas companies. I ask you to reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund as soon as possible.
