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.
We need Congress to fully—and permanently—fund LWCF as soon as possible! We know that we only have a small window of time left for critical funding to get passed. Or else the urgent conservation that relies on this funding will continue to be stuck in limbo year after year.
Call on Congress to fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund 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. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
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?
Fully Fund LWCF Now
With threats to nature rapidly increasing, it is especially critical to fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) immediately. 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. It has a 50-year track record of helping provide clean water, conserve natural resources, increase recreation opportunities, expand public access and support communities.Vital conservation work is in danger every day LWCF continues to be underfunded. Plus, increasing its funding will not cost taxpayers a penny because it's paid for with drilling revenues from offshore oil and gas production. I ask you to fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund as soon as possible. Please support S. 1081 or H.R. 3195, and insist this important legislation receives a vote before the end of the year.
