Help preserve our way of life

Now is the time for you to urge the Obama administration and Congress to support full and dedicated funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund at $900 million a year.
Created in 1965, the LWCF is a federal trust fund that improves public access to federal lands by accumulating revenues, primarily from oil and gas leases, for acquisition of protected lands and easements. As the primary source of funding available to federal land management agencies to develop and assure access to the places where we hunt and fish, the LWCF has helped save some of America’s most popular sporting destinations from development and closure. Congress, however, has consistently diverted these funds from their intended purposes of acquiring critical fish and wildlife habitat and sustaining public access.
