Be a Part of Something and TAKE ACTION - Save the Land and Water Conservation FundSeptember 4, 2018
If you do one thing today, do this. Saving The Land and Water Conservation Fund may be the most significant piece of legislation regarding public lands, access, and gaining versus losing recreational access for our entire generation. I won't make this long winded, so please use any spare time you have to sign on here and help us save this fund.
We have seen first hand what this fund does for access and our pursuit of expanding and preserving public access on the Yakima River. In fact, there are projects in motion RIGHT NOW that will need funding. This is critical.
Please take a moment and learn what this is, and sign on to help save it.
About the LWCF
The Land and Water Conservation Fund is in its 52nd year of conservation and recreation success. It is because of Teddy Roosevelt's vision to start protecting our recreational opportunities, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s instinct for conservation action, John F. Kennedy's commitment to the outdoors, and Lyndon B. Johnson's creation of LWCF that we as Americans now have the most extensive network of open spaces in the world to hunt, fish, hike, swim, and play.
But that could be all over in less than one month. In order to build momentum towards finding a long-term solution for authorization and funding, the LWCF Coalition is launching a year-long awareness initiative counting down to the expiration of our most important conservation and recreation program.
Each week a state or U.S. territory will be highlighted showcasing LWCF success stories from the federal, state, and local level, and opportunities that are on the horizon for LWCF to improve recreational access and conservation across America, and places that could be lost forever if Congress does not act by September 30, 2018.
