Urge your Senators to Pass Full Funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund this Session

Senators across AMC’s region have been reliable supporters of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to protect America’s treasured natural and recreational resources. Yet LWCF has only been fully funded once in its 46-year history. In the weeks ahead, this Congress has a tremendous opportunity to fulfill the unmet promise of LWCF. Now is the time to contact your Senators and urge them to enact full and dedicated funding this year.

The House of Representatives passed legislation earlier this year to provide full and dedicated funding for LWCF, thanks in part to your calls and emails. The Senate now has the opportunity to pass full and dedicated LWCF funding through S. 2747.

Please contact your Senators today and urge them to work with Senate leadership to fully fund LWCF before the end of this legislative session. Many of the nation’s most cherished parks, rivers, trails, forests, and refuges have been protected by the LWCF. By passing this bill before the end of this year, Senators can protect public lands and waters for future generations.
