From Joshua Tree National Park to the soccer field down the street, shared open spaces enrich our lives and help build community. Yet America's most important program for protecting parks will end on September 30 if we don't do something about it.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has been protecting parks since 1964. Without burdening taxpayers, it pays for projects and improved access at big public lands like national parks along with local ballfields, recreation centers and trails.
In September 2018, LWCF will expire, and shared spaces could become developed, fragmented or otherwise damaged. If you love parks like we do, please step up and #SaveLWCF. Please submit a letter to your member of Congress today.
