Great American Outdoors Act

With the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act, U.S. Congress has made a historic investment in America’s public lands – an investment that will leave a positive legacy on American conservation for generations to come. This landmark legislation fully funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund which supports a wide range of parks and conservation projects – from local playgrounds and ball fields to wilderness areas and working forests. This legislation also inaugurates the National Parks and Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund which will support deferred maintenance and repairs in national parks and forests. Thanks to the efforts of outdoor advocates and Washington’s congressional delegation, Washington communities, visitors, and businesses will benefit for years to come.

National Public Lands Day Cleanup

Looking for another way to give back? Consider joining us in celebrating National Public Lands Day from September 19-26. During our Love Your Lands campaign (Sept. 19-26), we are encouraging individuals to go out and pick up trash from your favorite public spaces. This could be anywhere ranging from your favorite neighborhood park, to a more remote hiking trail, and anywhere in between. All public lands are important, and they all need YOUR help to keep them beautiful and accessible for future generations. Learn more and sign up here.
