Protect the Land and Water Conservation Fund

Posted on

On September 30th the Land and Water Conservation fund is set to expire. Since 1964 this bipartisan program has funded many projects in the geographical region that we run, hike, and play in.

 

This program has allowed our area to become one of the nation’s best outdoor regions. We have hiking, running, mountain biking, swimming, kayaking, fishing . We have trail-heads, and paved paths for those who can’t go off-road. We have playgrounds, parks, ice rinks and the list goes on.

 

None of this has happened without fierce advocating for our outdoor spaces and we need your help now to renew the fund and continue to create and conserve our amazing outdoor spaces.

 

The Land and Water Conservation fund is paid for by reinvesting royalties from offshore oil and gas drilling into recreation and conservation projects across the country.

 

We are copying in a link from our friends over at the International Mountain Bike Association which will allow you to quickly send a letter to your representative asking them to continue funding this resource.

 

Please support #TrailsRoc and other local outdoor organizations by contacting your representative! 

 

Thank you!
