With a name like the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), you might not realize how vital this program is for protecting historic American places.
Massachusetts’ Minute Man National Historical Park, which preserves and interprets the opening battles of the American Revolution; the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park in Atlanta; and Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings at Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico are just a few of the many places that have benefited from land acquisitions made possible by LWCF.
Congress recently voted overwhelmingly to permanently authorize LWCF, but it continues to face severe underfunding.
Join us now in urging Congress to ensure the LWCF program is fully funded and endures for generations to come!
