Land, Water Conservation Fund Receives Full Funding
From Backcountry Hunters And Anglers
August is a month to remember – a time when public land owners across the U.S. were heard in Congress. When the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a program BHA members, supporters, partners and staff have been working to secure for 8 years, finally received full, dedicated funding. When our public lands and waters received an overdue investment in maintenance funding.
The passage of the Great American Outdoors Act will increase outdoor access and opportunity for generations to come. For those of you who stood up in support of this legislation this summer – those who took action, called members of Congress, wrote letters for local media outlets, rallied friends and family, hosted and attended events and used your voices in any way you could – this is your victory. You get to lay claim to helping shape conservation policy for Americans coast to coast and border to border. Revel in it.
We are grateful for each and every one of you, and we are stronger because of you.
