Our national parks are America’s Best Idea. They protect our irreplaceable natural and cultural resources, preserve the stories of our past, and connect Americans to the outdoors.

Land Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) funding is crucial to the successful management of our national parks and the continued protection of the irreplaceable natural and cultural resources that lay within the boundaries of those parks. From Palo Alto National Battlefield National Historical Park to Zion National Park, LWCF funding plays a huge role in preserving our national parks, America’s Best Idea.

We are calling on Congress to pass full, permanent, dedicated funding for LWCF to ensure that these critical inholdings are not lost forever. LWCF is an investment in our future, but it is an empty promise without the necessary funds to truly protect lands that are at risk.
