Help Preserve Wildlife Refuges and Public Parks in Louisiana and Across the Nation!
The all-important Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) is up for renewal. The LWCF is due to expire in September of 2015, so please act now. Urge Congress to renew and fund it fully.
In Louisiana alone, the LWCF has provided approximately $215,000,000.00 for state and federal land acquisition projects, including refuges, urban parks, playgrounds and baseball fields. Many of your favorite wildlife refuges and 204 state parks and preserves have been preserved thanks to the LWCF.
Tell Congress that the Land and Water Conservation Fund needs to be permanently renewed and fully funded at the previously authorized level of $900 million annually.
