Our Last Chance to Save the Land And Water Conservation Fund
America’s most important conservation program, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, will expire on September 30th if Congress does not act. Speak up today and urge your members of Congress to push for an immediate vote on legislation to permanently reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund before it expires.
Protect Our Endangered Species
Speak up today to oppose proposed changes that would rollback important protections of the Endangered Species Act, which could ultimately push hundreds of plants and animals to the brink of extinction. We need to keep strong policies in place that use science to drive protections. Please add your comment before September 24th to reject the proposed changes.
