Save the LWCF

Time is running out to save the Land and Water Conservation Fund! Tell Congress to act NOW, before it expires on September 30th!

We need to protect the LWCF, America’s best parks program, before it’s too late. American Trails is proud to support action to permanently reauthorize this critical program. Join us now and add your name to #SaveLWCF

We are hearing that there will be a markup on Thursday in SENR Committee that will include both S. 3172 (parks maintenance legislation) and a vote on LWCF dedicated funding in some form. There is also the potential for damaging, anti-LWCF amendments to emerge from non-supporters on the Committee, so just as with the recent HNRC markup we must be ready to whip votes and WIN.

Please reach out to SENR Member offices ASAP, and activate your networks to do so as well, to urge support for full, dedicated funding of LWCF at this week’s markup with no weakening amendments, and watch this space closely for additional updates as further developments unfold.

At the same time, we continue to press both House and Senate GOP offices for immediate outreach to Leadership insisting that LWCF cannot expire. Please make calls TODAY to Republican supporters asking for their help at this critical moment, with ONLY 4 DAYS LEFT to #SaveLWCF.
