The Land and Water Conservation Fund has protected millions of acres in nearly every county in the U.S.-- at NO COST to taxpayers. But Congress didn’t save this vital program before it expired. And if they don’t renew it before they adjourn in the next few weeks, we’ll have to start all over again from square one in January.
It’s crunch time. Each day that passes, hundreds of conservation efforts across the country that rely on this funding are in jeopardy. Now LWCF is at risk of going completely unfunded for months, if not longer, unless our elected leaders reauthorize it before the end of the year.
Call on Congress to get the Land and Water Conservation Fund back up and running as soon as possible. The clock is ticking to reauthorize and fully fund it 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. 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 LWCF Now
I'm deeply concerned that Congress allowed the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to expire. Our nation and our planet cannot afford to put essential conservation programs in jeopardy. It's essential to reauthorize and fully fund this program before Congress adjourns.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 natural resources, increase recreation opportunities and support communities.Vital conservation work is in danger every day LWCF continues to be expired. Plus, renewing it and increasing its funding will not cost taxpayers a penny because it's paid for with drilling revenues from oil and gas companies. I urge you to reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund now.
