Take Action

Sign now: Urge Congress to oppose Pres. Trump’s budget

The Trump administration has proposed devastating cuts to conservation funding in the 2020 budget.

The president’s budget proposes virtually eliminating America's best conservation program—the Land and Water Conservation Fund. If Congress approves the proposed budget, the cuts in funding could affect the protection of outdoor spaces that ensure access to public lands for fishing, boating, biking, hunting, and bird watching.

Take action: tell Congress these cuts to conservation funding are unacceptable and place the future of public lands at risk.

We are working with members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to combat this threat to our parks, lands, and programs that Americans love and need, but we can’t do it without your help.

Sign now and urge Congress to protect and support this critical conservation funding so we can defend access to public lands now and for generations to come.

RE: Oppose cuts to the Land and Water Conservation Fund

To 


I am writing to express my strong opposition to President Trump's proposal to virtually eliminate America's best conservation program in the fiscal 2020 budget.

For more than 50 years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has helped fund the protection and management of everything from national parks and forests to close-to-home recreation areas. This ensures every family has access to our country's iconic landscapes like the Tahoe National Forest, the Chattahoochee River, and the Appalachian Trail. Eliminating LWCF funding is absolutely unacceptable, leaving the future of our public lands at risk.

There is no economic justification for proposals that pull the rug out from ongoing collaborative local, state, and federal efforts aimed at supporting parks, trails, and other outdoor recreation needs. Public lands play a vital role in conserving and protecting our environment and economy, so I urge you, as my representative, to protect this critical resource and our public lands by allocating full funding to the LWCF in this year's budgeting process so we can protect public lands now and for future generations.

Sincerely,
