The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has been our nation’s most successful conservation and recreation program for 52 years, and in less than a year this program will expire unless reauthorized by Congress. LWCF has invested funds in every state and nearly every county of the U.S. including New York State. New York has received $326.6 million in LWCF funding over the past five decades, protecting places such as the Allegany State Park, Sterling Forest, and Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge. LWCF state assistance grants have further supported hundreds of projects across New York’s state and local parks.
We need your help to Save the LWCF!
