You love to fish, hike, camp, raft, hunt, etc....but what if those places you love to play were suddenly gone??? What are you doing to protect the places you play???
Join us in saving one of America's most important conservation and recreation programs; The Land & Water Conservation Fund. It will expire on September 30th unless Congress acts.
For 52 years, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has protected national parks and open spaces in every corner of the United States. But in less than 10 days, it could be gone forever and along with it, future protection of the places we love. LWCF has invested more than $268 million to protect Colorado’s outdoor places, public access to trails, climbing spots, sportsmen access, and to build close to home parks. From national forests, to Colorado’s breathtaking national parks and wildlife refuges, LWCF has protected places like Mesa Verde National Park, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, Arapaho National Forest, Two Ponds National Wildlife Refuge, a nature education park in Denver’s Montbello neighborhood, and Denver Urban Gardens. Colorado’s booming $28 billion outdoor recreation industry is an economic powerhouse – supporting 229,000 jobs which generate $9.7 billion in wages and salaries and produces $2 billion annually in state and local tax revenue.
