Take Action

Sign Now: Urge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to put the Great American Outdoors Act up for a vote

The Great American Outdoors Act (S. 3422), which would fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) — a funding fight more than four decades in the making — now has 58 cosponsors in the Senate!

The LWCF will help us recover from this crisis through funding rural gateway communities and providing green jobs and access to nature in areas where it’s needed now more than ever. In addition to fully funding the LWCF, the Great American Outdoors Act will also provide essential resources needed to restore our National Parks that are in desperate need of funding.

With a shift in the way Congress is operating, we need to show Senate Majority Leader McConnell that the Great American Outdoors Act is essential for our public lands and for our recovery from this public health crisis. Take action now and urge Senate Majority Leader McConnell to get the Great American Outdoors Act onto the Senate floor for a vote!

RE: Support the Great American Outdoors Act

To 


I am writing to express my strong support for funding our nation's parks, public lands, and green spaces through the Great American Outdoors Act. We cannot allow our parks or public lands to fall into disarray - our recovery from this crisis will depend on our ability to protect the parks and open spaces that protect fresh air and clean water, and provide safe spaces to walk, hike, and explore. I support the following sources of funding through the Great American Outdoors Act that will help us protect our environment, public health, and economy, and I urge you to support them too.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF): This critical source of federal funding for public lands will help us recover from this crisis through funding rural gateway communities and providing green jobs and access to nature in areas where it's needed now more than ever. Please support fully and permanently funding the LWCF at $900 million per year so we can conserve our country's special places and secure this critical access to nature.

National Parks: More than $11 billion in maintenance projects within our National Park system have been on the backburner due to lack of funds. Please ensure our National Parks are cared for by providing the NPS with funding to make critical restorations and repairs.

Our public lands are the pride of our nation, and they will help us to cope and recover from this pandemic. Therefore, I urge you to take a stand for public land during this difficult time and see that the Great American Outdoors Act comes up for a vote on the Senate floor.

Thank you,

Sincerely,
