Urgent Action Needed: Renew LWCF


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!

Renew LWCF Now

Dear TNC

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.
