A new report published yesterday by the Surfrider Foundation documents the importance of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to America’s conservation legacy by showing how the special places supported by the Fund over its 55-year history have become the “heart and soul” of numerous communities — “protecting unique ecosystems and cultural resources, providing solace and recreation, and contributing extensively to our nation’s economy.”
Why This Matters: Without permanent funding, the LWCF is likely to continue to be a “political hostage” — used as a bargaining chip in whatever battle is brewing in Congress.
