The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), signed into law in 1964, puts a portion of offshore drilling fees toward the protection of land and water, with money being intended for national parks, national forests, wildlife refuges and more.
However, despite bipartisan support in Washington D.C. and throughout the country, LWCF has been put on the political back-burner. Unless Congress takes action soon, this vital conservation fund will expire on September 30, 2018.
Your voice is critical to ensuring that LWCF will continue to permanently open access to America’s public lands and protect the places where Americans go to enjoy the great outdoors. To add your voice to the chorus of LWCF supporters, please visit https://wilderness.org/lwcf-coalition-sign-letter.
