Stand up for the Land and Water Conservation Fund
On September 30th, Congress allowed the Land and Water Conservation Fund to expire, leaving critically important conservation projects in limbo. In addition, Congress has proposed to divert Outer Continental Shelf revenues away from the Land and Water Conservation Fund, breaking its promise made over a half century ago. Since LWCF expired, America is losing $2.5M each day that would have gone toward protecting land and water forever. Write to your members of Congress and ask them to support and press for a vote on H.R. 6759 and S.569 to permanently reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation before the year ends.

The lack of leadership in addressing climate change at the federal level means your state leaders need to know that you support climate initiatives and energy efficiency investments at the state and local level. let your Governor know where you stand.
Zoning Proposal Threatens Northern Maine
