Defend Funding for Public Lands


Without the Land and Water Conservation Fund, some of the most cherished places in your state and across the United States might not exist.

Great Sand Dunes National Park. The Grand Canyon. Sequoia National Park. Acadia National Park. LWCF was critical in protecting all these and more. But despite its 52-year track record of success, Congress failed to renew LWCF last October.

As the new Congress begins, now is time to speak out and urge them to renew LWCF right away!

Protecting nature is something we can all agree on. LWCF has had strong bipartisan support in the past, and we need that spirit now. It benefits nearly every county in the U.S. and costs the taxpayers nothing. That’s why renewing and fully funding it should be at the top of this Congress’s new agenda.

With your help, we can continue to protect America’s greatest natural treasures in your backyard and beyond. Call on Congress to renew and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund ASAP.

Renew and fully fund LWCF Right Away

Dear TNC

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 last October, 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 52-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.
