RSVP below to join us for a webinar about the importance of the Land and Water Conservation Fund!
Join us as we discuss the Land and Water Conservation Fund, the little known best friend of our national, state, and local parks!
Access to the outdoors is good for mental and physical health. People are taking advantage of outdoor spaces, while maintaining physical distancing and following CDC guidelines. Many of these opportunities exist because of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).
With people flocking outside, investments in improving access to public lands are important now more than ever. Full funding for LWCF is needed to create more access points on existing public lands, and build more close-to-home parks and trails across the country. LWCF is a simple idea: that a portion of the offshore drilling fees should be used to protect America's land and water. The program is authorized to receive up to $900 million each year, but every year these funds are diverted elsewhere.
Investing in our public lands, and providing full, permanent funding for LWCF through the Great American Outdoors Act is a low-cost economic stimulus that will pay big dividends for communities across America.
Congress is voting on the Great American Outdoors Act THIS SUMMER, so join us and learn how and why you can support the Land and Water Conservation Fund today!
This lunch and learn will be conducted over Zoom on June 27th at 12:30 pm EST. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions as well. A invitation link will be sent to your email prior to the town hall. Please RSVP below and we look forward to seeing you there!
